East Riding of Yorkshire Council has successfully prosecuted Richmond Properties Ltd, Field Head, Driffield Road, Molescroft, Beverley, for offences under the Building Regulations.
These relate to a building erected at land north of 86 Molescroft Park, Molescroft, Beverley.
Richmond Properties Ltd were found guilty at Beverley Magistrates Court on 27 August of failing to submit a building notice or deposit full plans and of failing to provide notice of commencement of building work and completion of certain stages of work.
The two offences were proved in their absence and the company was fined a total of £1000 and ordered to pay costs of £515.28 and a victim surcharge of £50.
East Riding building control officers discovered a building being erected by Richmond Properties Ltd without the necessary Building regulation consent and, despite numerous requests to be involved with the project to ensure compliance with national building regulations, work was completed without consent or inspection.
Richard Hobson, the council’s building control team leader, said: “This case, which
was brought after every effort had been made to secure co-operation from the company, shows the importance of following the correct application process before work begins and also notifying Building Control at key stages throughout construction to allow inspection so that compliance with national building regulation standards can be demonstrated.”
