Better Business for All - Building Regulations

Do you have any regulatory concerns for your business?

Not sure what regulations your business needs to comply with?

Building Regulations approval is not the same thing as planning permission.


In a lot of cases you will need both planning permission and building regulations approval.

Complying with Building Regulations is something that is enforced by your local authority.


Rules and what is acceptable can differ from area to area so you must contact the council where your business premises is located.

Building Regulations will cover things like:

  • New buildings

  • Extensions or alterations to existing buildings

  • New services or fittings

  • Changes to the use of premises

Most building work you carry out will require approval from either your local authority or an approved inspector.

You need to make sure your business is fully compliant and that you get it right first time and save money!

Please contact the Business Support Helpline to give them your business postcode so they can signpost you to your local authority.

Don't forget they can also provide you with free, impartial advice for anything to do with your business! So have your questions ready for them!
