Do I need Building Regulations approval for a specific proposal?

The Building Regulations are essentially a set of minimum building standards which provide acceptable levels of health and safety for people including those who are disabled, who live, work, visit or are in the vicinity of buildings. It is the responsibility of the Building Control Division to enforce the Building Regulations and other relevant allied legislation.

If you are considering carrying out any form of building development it is almost certain that you will need to make an application for Building Regulation Approval.

When carrying out building works applicants should note that Building Regulations Approval and Planning Permission are completely separate requirements. It is important to check what you need and to obtain consent prior to starting work.
