Agents Information relating to Building Control Matters

This web page is designed for Building Control Agents who regularly submit applications to Wealden District Council.

Changes as from 1st April 2011

As part of the transformation programme under implementation at Wealden District Council, and similar circumstances at Eastbourne Borough Council, the Building Control Services of Wealden and Eastbourne are forming a partnership to provide a shared service throughout both authorities.

The shared services will operate under the new branding of East Sussex Building Control Partnership from 1st April 2011. The principal partner under the agreement will be Wealden, with the service being based provisionally at the Council Offices in Crowborough and ultimately in Hailsham after our planned office move in the Summer of 2012.
