Partnerships

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.

 

The Councils of Ryedale, Selby and Scarborough jointly spend £53 million every year on the supplies, services and works needed to deliver services to the public in all areas. How well we procure those requirements has a critical impact on our performance and ability to provide value for money.

The Joint Procurement Strategy sets out the over-arching framework, which will help to ensure that together our procurement delivers excellent value and supports the attainment of the councils’ priorities and visions.

The joint strategy will help the three councils achieve the objectives set for the North Yorkshire Joint Procurement Committee.

It takes into account the national agenda as set out in the National Procurement Strategy for local Government, together with the Councils local priorities. The strategy is supported by a business plan covering the next three years. This will require commitment from officers, elected members and partners to realise its targets and objectives,

Collaborative procurement is at the heart of the Government’s Operational Efficiency Programme, and Ryedale District Council now has on-hand expertise to allow us to deliver more effective procurement.
