Building regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure safety and health for people, including those with disabilities, in or around those buildings and to help conserve fuel and power.

Building regulations approval is not the same as obtaining planning permission for your work. In the same way, being granted planning permission is not the same as taking action to ensure that the work complies with building regulations. If you are having construction work carried out you will have health and safety responsibilities to consider and may need to notify us before starting work.
