Wealden and Eastbourne

Wealden District Council Building Control originally merged with Eastbourne Borough Council Building Control in April 2011 to form a partnership that led to Wealden taking over the building control for the Eastbourne area.

Wealden took on several staff members from Eastbourne because of this partnership who are still with us today.

East Sussex Building Control Partnership (ESBCP)

With the previous partnership in place, the authorities decided to branch out to create a larger partnership by merging with Rother District Council and Hastings Borough Council Building Control to create one large partnership in April 2017.

The ESBCP now provides building control services from areas such as Forest Row and East Dean to Camber, This stretches across the entire Wealden district and through to the Rother District. – To see a map of the areas please see our Area Page.
