The Building Regulations set standards for the design and
construction of buildings primarily to ensure the safety and health
for people in or around those buildings, but also for energy
conservation and access to and about.
It is important to understand how the building regulatory system
applies to your situation, as you are responsible for making sure
that the work complies with the regulations if you are carrying out
building work personally.
Remember - complying with Building Regulations is a separate
matter from getting planning permission for your work
The Building Regulations can be viewed on the Planning Portal. You may find it useful to go
to the Amber Valley
Building Control Services Home Page in order to see how we can
help you with your Building Regulations application.
