What are the Building Regulations?
The Building Regulations are intended to protect people's safety, health and welfare in and around buildings. The regulations are also designed to improve conservation of fuel and power, protect and enhance the environment and promote sustainable development. Local councils administer the regulations.
There are technical booklets with guidance about the Building Regulations. You can use any construction but you must satisfy your local council's standard that your work meets the Building Regulations.
