The Local Authority is responsible for ensuring that buildings are properly designed and constructed so as to ensure the health, safety, welfare and convenience of people using them. All building work must comply with the Building Regulations current at the time the work is undertaken.
The North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership (NYBCP) provides the building control service for Richmondshire District Council (along with Hambleton, Ryedale, Scarborough and Selby Councils).
Information and relevant documentation, on its services, can be found on the NYBCP website - www.nybcp.org
