Frequently Asked Questions
- Do neighbors have the right to object to what is proposed in a Building Regulations application?
There is no requirement to consult neighbors under the Building Regulations proposal. However, it would be courteous to advise your neighbors of the proposed works. If an application for planning permission is made, neighbours who may be affected by the proposal, have the right to object to the proposal.
- What is the difference between Planning and Building Control?
If you want to carry out building work, you may require both Planning Permission and Building Regulations approval. Planning and Building Control are separate; if you get one you are not guaranteed the other.
If a Building Regulations application is not required for proposed works, you must nevertheless ensure that you have checked whether planning permission or Listed Building consent is necessary.
Planning has more to do with the appearance of a property or an extension to a property and how it relates its surroundings. Building Control aims to see that the building satisfies its functional requirements and provides reasonable health, safety and comfort for the property users.
- How long does building regulations approval remain valid for?
Building Regulations applications remain valid for three years after the date of submission. Planning permission also remains valid for three years.
If the applicant wants to start the proposed works after more than three years have elapsed since the date of submission of the application, a new application is required and the works must comply with the standards that are current at the date of the subsequent application, and not those current when the original application was submitted.
Once works have started, there is no limit for completing the works. However, you should periodically update the local authority of the progress of works and contact them once the works are completed or occupied.
- How soon can work start after submitting an application?
Legally you can start two working days after submitting a Building Regulations application.
However you must have given written notification of your intention to start works.
You should also be aware that in starting works at short notice, you are doing so at your own risk. If there has not been a reasonable opportunity for the details submitted to be vetted by the local authority.
At the end of the day, it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the works comply with the Building Regulations and any other relevant legislation.
