North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership was the first Local Authority Building Control Partnership in the UK. It provides a building control service to Hambleton, Richmondshire, Ryedale, Scarborough and Selby Councils.

The Partnership processes Building Regulation applications under the provisions of Section 91 and 92 of the Building Act 1984. Building Regulations exist to secure the health, safety, welfare and convenience of people in and about buildings, the conservation of fuel and power and access and facilities for disabled people. In addition to Building Regulations, the Partnership undertakes work in relation to dangerous structures and demolitions for all five Partner Councils.

Our customers are the residents of each Partner Authority, developers and their agents, commercial and business employers, consultees (including statutory undertakers and public regulatory bodies), the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), Councillors, Management Board Members and departments within each local authority.

The Partnership consults with its customers (applicants) on a continuous basis through the issue of its Service Delivery Questionnaire, upon completion of works. In addition to this, it consults on a regular basis with other users e.g agents, architects, developers, stakeholders, staff etc.

All local authorities have a statutory duty to make provision for internal audit in accordance with proper standards of professional practice, as set out in the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS). Public sector bodies also have a duty to protect public funds and to ensure that income and expenditure is not subject to possible fraud and error.

The Veritau group consists of two companies – Veritau Limited and Veritau North Yorkshire Limited. The group is owned by a number of member councils (including Ryedale District Council) and provides services to its customers in three related areas – internal audit, counter fraud and information governance. The services are primarily designed to:

  • provide assurance on the adequacy and effectiveness of governance arrangements and internal controls;
  • provide advice on the design, implementation and operation of appropriate controls so as to minimise business risk;
  • recommend best practice solutions and innovative approaches which will add value and lead to continuous improvement in service delivery;
  • act as a visible deterrent against possible wrong doing, and investigate any cases of suspected fraud or corruption as and when it is detected;
  • help ensure compliance with data protection and other related legislation.

For further information about the services provided to the council please contact Veritau.
