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 5 out of 5 by from Very good item better than expected very pleased Easy to use and good value would recommend to other people

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for DIY I bought this product a few weeks ago as had to put up a bathroom mirror in a new flat and didn't know where water pipes and electrics were situated. I was so glad I did otherwise could have caused some serious damage ( flood or electrical problems) as where I had intended to hang a bathroom mirror there were both water pipes and electrics in the wall. Great multi use tool at reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a really great tool and a great price too I got this tool to help me put up a tv Wall bracket and needs to find a stud to attract it to. Once you get to know the operation it's really easy to use and can't believe that it's has all those features for such a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Monkey could use this! Not sure why you would even look at the instructions it's pretty self explanatory. Easy to use and full of really useful features!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good once you work out how it works I bought this item but like all the other comments found the instructions useless and had to go on to Internet to find out how it worked. If its any help to anyone the unit measures distance etc through the base where the laser is, but to locate studs, pipes and cables behind walls the unit needs to be flat against the wall. That is look for the felt pads on the back of the unit and place them against the wall, then it works

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great - once you've figured out the calibration As far as I can tell, this is OK, the main failing is the calibration instructions are completely wrong: you need to press "read" and "press" together while holding the unit on the wall. Once that is done it detected pipes and studs in a stud wall and wires in a brick wall. Shame there's no off switch and you wouldn't want to rely on the ultrasonic tape measure. But it does what I need it to do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked ok until it broke It worked ok, sometimes it would detect things that weren't there so I wasn't 100% trusting of it when it came to detecting cables but unfortunately that was the main reason why I bought it! It's totally stopped working now, only used it 3 times. Far too expensive for what it's actually worth!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Abysmal instructions, making it impossible to use I'm sure this works but I cannot figure it out. The instructions are impossible to follow, as they simply are not complete enough. B&Q, please post an instructional video. A few things are ok to figure out - measuring distance and temperature, but NOT finding a stud.
