Do you need building regulation approval?
As well as getting planning permission you may need separate approval for a new building, extension or major alteration.
Your work needs to reach certain standards so that the building is safe and energy efficient.
Generally you’ll need building control approval for:
- new buildings
- loft conversions
- changes to the structure of the building
- change the use of buildings
- home improvements such as a new boiler, radiators, bathroom, fuse box, electric, windows, doors and roofing
