Build your dream home, step 8: Building regulations approval

Build your dream home - building regs approval

After Planning Consent is obtained, a submission of the plans to Building Control for Building Regulations Approval will be required.

Building Regulations in England are made under the Building Act 1984 and are regularly changed and updated. Building Regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure the safety and health for people, including those with disabilities in or about those buildings and to help conserve fuel and power.

Planning drawings are worked up to include structural sections and specifications necessary for a Building Regulations submission. Drawings are then submitted to Local Authority Building Control for checking and approval.
