Building regulations Birmingham

Building regulations contain the rules for building work in new and altered buildings making sure your property is habitable, safe, dry and warm. Building regulations approval is usually required for most building work in the UK. You’ll probably need planning permission if you want to: build something new; make a major change to your building - e.g. building an extension or change the use of your building.

There are a number of considerations made when the Local Planning Authority decide on a planning application. They will look at:

  • the number, size, layout, siting and external appearance of buildings
  • the infrastructure available - e.g. roads and water supply
  • any landscaping needs
  • what you want to use the development for
  • how your development would affect the surrounding area - e.g. if it would create lots more traffic
