Home Building Legislation

Home building legislation usually falls under two main headings.  That required by the Councils Planning Department and that of the Building Regulations either under the control of the Council or as an approved private inspector.

Planning legislation for home building looks at the impact of the proposal upon neighbours, the street scene, local site zonings etc. all of which is contained within the Council Planning Policy documents which can be down loaded from each respective councils web site.

Certain elements of the Planning legislation for home building or house extension proposals can be subjective elements based upon interpretations much of which can be challenged at appeal should the Planners refuse your scheme.

The Building Regulations side of the home building legislation is based upon health and safety and current good building practice to ensure that a minimum standard of construction is achieved.

Both of these two main home building legislation elements can be handled for you by an experienced home extension designer or architect who will act as your agent in preparing all drawings and specifications complete with acting as your agent through the various application processes.
