Building Regulations - Gloucester & Stroud


Building Regulations are separate to Planning Permission applications and most building work will require Building Regulations approval.

The Building Regulations set standards for building work on new development and extensions and alterations to your home.  Building Regulations are a legal requirement that apply in England & Wales and cover a building’s construction, energy efficiency and access.

They also cover all aspects of construction, including foundations, damp-proofing, the overall stability of the building, insulation, ventilation, sound transference, heating, fire protection and means of escape in case of fire and contain a list of requirements designed to ensure minimum standards for health, safety, energy efficiency, sustainability, welfare and to prevent misuse of the water supply. They also ensure that adequate facilities for people with disabilities are provided in certain types of building. The Building Regulations are updated regularly.

Building Control will inspect building work at various stages to ensure it complies with Building Regulations. Structual calculations may aso be required.

EasyPlan can provide Building Regulations and structual calculations should you require them.
