Building Control Enforcement Policy

This Enforcement Policy clearly illustrates a structured approach to the way that Lincs Building Consultancy intends to deal with Building Control enforcement.

The principles of proportionality, consistency and transparency are considered vital and are embedded into a procedure that delivers a prompt and effective response.

The policy reflects the level of service that the public and business sector expects Lincs Building Consultancy to deliver.

Through an effective inspection and monitoring regime, together with a proactive approach to the early resolution of breaches of Building Regulations, formal enforcement under the provisions of the Building Act is rare. Through close liaison with other internal and external development agencies a coordinated approach will be made to enforcement.

The Building Control Enforcement Policy re-affirms our commitment to procedures that are fair and consistent, and one that is followed in a practical manner taking into account 'The Good Practice Guide' associated with Enforcement Concordat, which we have committed our self to.
