What are Building regulations
If you're planning to build in England and Wales, you might need building regulations approval.
You may need to get building regulations approval if you want to develop your property.
Building regulations are standards imposed by the regulations as provided by The Building Regulations 2010 for designing and constructing buildings to make sure they're safe and healthy for people who use them.
We ensure that buildings which we develop are properly designed and constructed, and the highest standards are maintained.
Building regulations approval is different from planning permission.
