Most building works have to meet national standards known as building regulations for them to be legal.

These standards cover design, construction and alterations and aim to ensure that any project is safe, healthy and convenient for everyone including the public.

Our building control service makes sure that all structures, properties or extensions are built properly, according to the building regulations.

The building regulations are supported by Approved Documents, which set out how to comply with the regulations.
