Planning Portal guidance - Building Regulations

Building Regulations set the standard for construction throughout England and Wales. The regulations cover all aspects of design and construction, and deliver a built environment that is healthy, safe, energy efficient and accessible to the whole community.

For more information about Building Regulations, visit the Communities and Local Government website.

The Planning Portal gives guidance on applying for approval and lots of technical advice.

The Planning Portal is the UK Government’s online planning and building regulations resource for England and Wales. It provides advice and services for the public, professionals and local government. It will tell you if you need to apply for planning permission or building regulations approval.
