How to understand building and planning regulations

How to understand building and planning regulations

What are planning and building controls? Why do they exist? Can you deal with them yourself or is it best to ask a specialist? As with any task, you can decide for yourself when you know exactly what's involved.

First of all, it's important to understand what planning and building regulations are. It's easy to think of them as restrictive, bureaucratic tools put in place purely to thwart your ambitions. However, they're essential safety mechanisms which have been designed to protect you, your neighbours and the local environment.

The regulatory bodies will give you permission to carry out your plans unless there are very good reasons not to - in which case they must explain their decision. And if you disagree, you have the right to appeal against it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inaccurate - beware After spending an age measuring for replacement double glazing units, where I needed to measure internal frame sizes, I ran a random double check with a steel tape on a few openings. Over the "1 m" length of this B&Q rule it actually measures 995 mm, and so all of my units would have arrived "oversize". At the mid point of the rule it is 2.5 mm out, and so the inaccuracy seems to be proportional to the distance you're measuring. Not only is this very inconvenient it leaves users open to making very expensive mistakes. I checked the B&Q rule against three steel tapes and an old, but accurate, folding boxwood rule and got the same result on all four. B&Q really need to check the accuracy of this product themselves and, if they find the same as I did they should withdraw it from sale.
