Who we are

Welcome to The East Sussex Building Control Partnership

East Sussex Building Control is a Partnership organisation which carries out the Building Control function on behalf of four separate local authorities, covering Eastbourne and Hastings Boroughs,  and Rother and Wealden Districts.


We aim to work with and alongside property owners, architects engineers and developers to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations. By providing a shared service over multiple authorities, customers working across the region can utilise a single point of contact for Building Regulations queries and applications, and expect a greater degree of consistency in service.
