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 Feel good, and cuts good too. I had 4 laminated sheets of glass, 3x6ft that needed to be cut into halves. Practiced on some glass picked up from the recycle centre for free, like the Asian lad at B&Q suggested, and then tried it on the actual glass. I used electrical tap to mark the edges of the cut, and went to work. I found that making vertical cuts at the ends made the glass break better. I did find that the cutting tool has an 'A' shape at the tip, when looked down from the tip, so took that into account when letting it run along a 1x2 while I cut. I've made 8 cuts and the wheel is still good. "Practice and knowledge makes perfect "

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job Does the job although I had to practice on one piece of glass first. Check out u-tube for tips first and be brave when snapping the glass! The results are all down to how you use it. I cut 10 pieces of 2 foot square green house glass easily once I had got over the fear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from does the job...just Bought this item in order to cut less than ten sheets of greenhouse glass. Despite a youtube watching session to educate myself, and keeping the wheel well oiled, it only survived about five cuts before giving up the ghost. I ended up breaking my last two cuts. If you have one or two cuts to do, and dont want to pay to have glass professionally cut, then this will work fine. My experience was that it is now in the bin..BUT... the greenhouse is up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! I brought this glass cutter at the weekend as I needed to fit some windows to my greenhouse after some damage. I managed to cut four panes 60 cm by 50 cm (not many) before the wheel that holds the small cutting blade started to wobble around and also then managed to retract into the cutter rending it useless. I didn't expect much for the price but to only just last four panes is shocking by any standards. To put this into context, this is the first review I have ever written and I'm so appalled by this product that I feel 1 have to warn other buyers. Not a happy bunny!!!!!!
