What is the Somerset Building Control Partnership?

Somerset Building Control Partnership (SBCP) is the largest Local Authority Building Control Partnership in the South West. We provide a modern, flexible building control service to business and householders on behalf of Mendip, Taunton Deane, Sedgemoor and West Somerset Councils.


Please read the following 'disclaimer' and select the link below to access the service.

Users must note that while we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the data, the building control information contained within the site is incomplete and must not be used for carrying out a formal "local land charges search".

It also cannot be relied upon to constitute a full building control history for a site. No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in building control information obtained. No liability is accepted for loss or damage arising from use of building control information obtained from this site, whether foreseeable or otherwise. Similarly, the information contained does not constitute in any way a formal notification of a building control decision, and as such any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewers own risk.

Building Regulation Applications

The SBCP Building Regulations applications for Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane and West Somerset date back to a period of 15 years (starting from the date of submission of a valid application). Any Mendip application registered after 01/06/2016 will be held on this portal. However, to view records for Mendip pre-dating 01/06/2016, please use the Mendip 'My Maps'online webpage.
