Conveyancing Solicitor Bristol talk about building regulations and planning permissions
http://www.Cluttoncox.co.uk for your FREE Conveyancing book by Paul Hajek. Planning Permissions &BuildingRegulations: Did You Know? Planning controls are designed to ensure, that in all new builds and where alterations or renovations are planned for existing properties, that there is compliance with current methods and materials. Not all works to existing properties require consent from Local Authority. Works of a small nature may fall under an exemption known as "permitted development". But, most people also know that when you want to add an extension or alter your property substantially you may need Planning Permission. And where Planning Permission is not required you may still need Building Regulation approval from the Local Authority.
