Building regulations advice

We offer free basic advice over the telephone for building regulations. If you would like to speak to one of our building control surveyors please call 01733 453422. Please be aware that our surveyors are usually out of the office conducting site inspections between 10am and 3pm.

Guidance can also be found on the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) website.


Approved Documents

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government publishes guidance called ‘Approved Documents’ on ways to meet building regulations.

These contain:

  • general guidance on the performance expected of materials and building work in order to comply with the building regulations
  • practical examples and solutions on how to achieve compliance for some of the more common building situations
