Local Authorities or Councils, through their Building Control Departments, have a statutory duty to apply building regulations. These regulations make sure of the safety and health of people in and around buildings. They also protect the environment by stating that buildings must be thermally efficient, energy-efficient, and reduce pollution which  damages the atmosphere.

There are also regulations which deal with accessibility and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.Building regulations and Building Control have an important role to play in helping protect people and the environment.  

Building Control carefully assesses the proposed work to make sure it meets the building regulations. As work progresses on site building control officers inspect it at crucial and important stages. There are a number of ‘routes’ you can take when making an application to Building Control.
