The Fenland building control team has joined forces with King’s Lynn in a project based at Wisbech.

The CNC Building Control team from Fenland moved into the Boathouse in Wisbech joining forces with their counterparts from King’s Lynn, who relocated there in December.

They form a joint team of professionals covering North East Cambridgeshire and West Norfolk.

CNC has brought together the building control departments of South Norfolk Council, Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council.

Fenland District Council joined the partnership in September last year (2014) sharing resources and expertise to provide a modern, flexible building control service for the region.

Fenland District Councillor Will Sutton, the Cabinet member responsible for building control, said: “Working together like this is the best way of enabling local authorities to make significant financial savings while continuing to provide high-quality services. We will retain our local expertise but the introduction of improved technology and new ways of working will mean the team can work more flexibly across the whole area.”

South Norfolk Councillor David Bills said. “This is the beginning of the next chapter for Building Control in our region. In 2013 CNC moved from Broadland to South Norfolk Council’s offices in Long Stratton and 18 months later CNC is in the strongest position it has ever been. We see this latest development as propelling the business even further forward to become more resilient and efficient in the delivery of Building Control services across district boundaries.”
