4. Planning Applications
Planning Permission, in simple terms, is asking if you can carry out building work on a property. The council is empowered to grant (possibly subject to certain conditions) or refuse this permission dependant on the affect of those works on the environment and your neighbours. A planning application presents the project to the planning department in a format that they require so that they can make a fair decision. If the application is presented badly this can prejudice the decision. If it is presented clearly and simply, then frequently permission is granted.
5. Building Regulations
A Building Regulations application is separate from your planning permission . Building Regulations Applications are detailed Specifications and Drawings for how your project should be built. They are submitted to Local Building control to make sure your building will meet required standards. Building Regulations make sure that you building is going to be safe, strong and energy efficient. They are a requirement for many building Projects including all new homes and most extensions and alterations. The Local Building Control will inspect the building works as it progresses and will give full approval once the builder has completed the project to their satisfaction.
