For home improvements, Building Regulations approval will be needed. Ensuring that buildings are constructed to an agreed standard, the regulations are complex, but are essential to promote accessibility, health and safety and energy efficiency in the home.

As a homeowner, you're responsible for your home and any related building work. Works to your home, or the creation of new structures, will most likely need approval.

It is likely that even minor home improvements will require Building Regulations consent. This can be an extremely complex subject, please get in touch with our Building Control team if you want to discuss Building Regulations for your project.
