Senior Building Control Officer Trevor Durant and Building Control Officer Patrick Warner have secured the qualifications from the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE).

West Lindsey District Council Chief Operating Officer, Mark Sturgess, said: “Trevor and Patrick’s chartered status is welcome news not only for the council but for those seeking advice when it comes to the building process. It brings not only a sense of specialist knowledge but confidence for those who may be unsure of regulations or are first-time builders.”
