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 3 out of 5 by from No instructions included There are no fitting instructions/positioning information for this stay - the positioning is critical for correct operation - had to find them on a manufacturer's website.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Much patience is required to fit Lift Flap stays 1. There are no instructions included. 2. There are no fixings included. 3. The holes in the plastic parts are for #6 wood screws. 4. The holes in the steel part are for #8 wood screws. 5. The hole pitch in both parts is imperial - 1.25" 6. Cheaply made but sold for much more. After reading some posts I took my time inspecting the parts and playing with them to determine their function. I fitted two of these to bridging cabinets with slab doors. Tools, Frog tape, wood stay, small square, 1mm and 1.5mm drills. Ref the wood stay, open the cabinet door and measure the distance between the door and the cabinet lower edge. Cut some scrap timber for a stay which will allow you to work on the fitting of the assembly with door open. On the side face of the cabinet you intend positioning the stay, apply frog tape down the front face the cabinet carcass and the side face of the door. On the inside face of the carcass (were the plastic part fits) mark two hole positions. Both 40mm in from the front face. The top hole 76mm (3") down from the top inside face the second hole 108mm (4.25") from the top face. For those unaware this makes the hole centres 32mm (1.25"). Pre drill the two holes with 1mm drill to a safe depth that will not break through visible outside of carcass. Using two #6 screws attach the stay assemble to the side face. When you now operate the stay you will see that the metal part that screws to the door is under flush with the carcass front face by about 5mm. Hold the metal part with both fixing screws vertical and using the small square eyeball each hole and transfer their centres to the frog tape on the front side of the carcass. Close the cabinet door and transfer those marks to the frog tape on the side of the door. At this stage run a pencil line down the frog tape on the carcass. Open the door and prop it open using the wood stay. Transfer the two marks from the frog tape on the side of the door onto the doorss inside face. These are the bracket hole pitch (32mm) now measure in 32mm from the side of the door to obtain the hole centres. Pre drill these holes with the 1.5mm drill making sure you DO NOT BREAK THROUGH. Using the 2 x #8 screws attach the metal hinge to the door. I used this principle for both left and right flap stays and both work a treat. I hope you find this useful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not at all easy to fit Supplied with no instructions or measurements, fitting is guesswork and trial and error.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Nothing No instructions no screws no nothing - hopeless piece of kit. Only saving grace chap who left some instuctions in his review. Not sure how long it will last for!! Just hoping for the best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from B&Q Nickel effect Steel RH Flap Stay This product comes with no instructions whatsoever and unless you are an experienced fitter who has used these before, I'm afraid you are going to get awfully frustrated when fitting this item. The positioning differences between this functioning correctly or otherwise are very very tight indeed and you will end up drilling more holes than you wish to on the inside of your cabinet doors and walls. It would not be a huge ask for B&Q to provide a paper template for the correct drilling position given the price of this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product, made worse by terrible support I agree with absolutely every one of the 1 star reviews. If there was a 0 star this product would have it. Actually, that is unfair. It may be a good product if it was possible to fit it properly. There are no instructions, and this is NOT a stick it on and it will work product. And there is no guidance on the website. The positioning is critical, I assume, because I have tried three or four times and it is always "nearly there". This thing cost £5.98, there are no screws, no instructions, no fitting template.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should be in a cracker I have assembled this in what seems to be an infinite number of ways but still cannot figure out how to use it. It should be marketed as one of those puzzles you find in Christmas crackers, which is where it's driving me. Or, why not provide some instructions??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why no instructions? As per all the other reviews for this product, my main criticism is that there are no instructions provided. This is a mechanical product which requires specific and accurate positioning relative to the unit to which it is being fixed. Without this it simply won't function. In the absence of instructions it would be quite difficult to work out exactly what the positioning should be. Thankfully a very kind fellow named DAJ has worked it all out for us and posted his instructions here. I followed these instructions but got stuck half way and guessed the rest and it worked perfectly. Thanks for your help DAJ, B&Q ought to send you a voucher or something ! My other criticism is that the part that is attached to the the cupboard carcass is made of plastic and will be subject to quite a lot of wear during opening and closing and will be supporting a relatively substantial load when a flap is left in the open position. I wonder how long these will last. A year or two? Anyway, I'm replacing my old gas filled struts which have become "floppy" and which as far as I know can't be reparied. I've also scoured the web for a better version of these "gravity" stays and the only ones I could find also seemed to be missing any instructions!
