If you're a homeowner and planning an extension or conversion, you may need a building regulations inspection as well as planning permission. Whereas planning permission is about how a building looks, building regulations make sure your home is structurally safe.
Getting building work approved by your local council's building control team guarantees that the work is safe and up to building regulations standards as well as protecting you against rogue builders. So seek their advice before starting any building project.
