How to understand building & planning regulations

How to understand building & 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 Extremely user friendly I would deliberately avoid the other detectors available as this one does everything at once. It distinguishes between live wire and metal objects by the sound it makes when it detects either. The live wire is an alarm sound where as a metal object is a monotomous tone which increases in pitch as you get closer to the metal object. I have managed to avoid hitting wires behind walls as well as central heating pipes in the floor when trying to make a hatch for new spot lights in the floor below. Seriously- get this detector as it is much cheaper than having to re-wire a wall or drain leaked water from a pipe that has accidentally been drilled through (I learned the hard way)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product with intuitive features I bought this product, as we had just moved, and I needed to fix lots of pictures and shelves to the walls. The 'detector allows me to drill into the walls with absolute confidence that I am not going to drill into a pipe or electrical supply! Money very well spent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up & use. I bought this device some weeks ago & have used it. For someone like me who has never used anything like this before, I found it easy to set up with clear instructions. I found that when I took the batteries out & put back in box (which they recommended if you’re not using it all the time) the device needed re-calibrating but the leaflet had clear instructions on how to do this. The device worked perfectly. In all it’s the best money I’ve spent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable and Returned Read the instructions fully with a view to putting up some pictures. In different rooms on different breeze block walls the Truvo was found to be entirely unreliable. Re-calibrated it 3 times again in accordance with instructions and retried but with no reliability returned it within 4 hours. Good job B & Q have such a reliable refund service.
