Proposed Building Control Service Transfer

Key Decision

Portfolio Holder for Place, Planning and Regeneration: Councillor Matthew Relf




Cabinet were asked to consider authorising the transfer of the Council’s Building Control Service.



a)    the delivery of the Building Control Service be transferred to Erewash Borough Council;


b)    under Section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972, Sections 19 and 9EA of the Local Government Act 2000 and Regulation 5(2)(a) of the Local Authorities (Arrangements for the Discharge of Functions) (England) Regulations 2012 that the appropriate delegated authority be granted to Erewash Borough Council to deliver building control services on

behalf of Ashfield District Council and in accordance with the terms of a Delegation Agreement which is to be agreed by both Authorities;


c)    delegated authority be granted to the Director of Place and Communities, in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance, to finalise the terms of the draft Delegation Agreement following consultation with staff and negotiation of terms with Erewash Borough Council.



1)    Approval of the recommendations will enable the Council to increase resilience of the service for Ashfield whilst providing efficiencies with limited implementation costs.


2)    Inclusion of annual budgetary savings without any adverse impact to the front line. The approval will allow Building Control service to continue to be delivered by local professional surveyors. Giving greater resilience, the service is likely to be enhanced to that recently received due to capacity issues.


3)    The service will remain in the local building control authority network and Erewash has the same ISO 9000 accreditation.
