Building Regulations

What are Building Regulations?

The Building Regulations set standards to ensure people’s health, safety, welfare and convenience of people in and around buildings. They also provide for energy conservation, and inclusive access to and use of buildings.

They are technical in nature, and frequently updated.

Complying with Building Regulations is a separate matter from getting planning permission for your work.
