Building Regulations Explained

The Building Regulations are in place for private projects and commercial buildings. It's key you follow the Building Regulations to:

  • ensure the health and safety of people in and around buildings
  • provide easier access to buildings for everyone
  • promote energy efficiency
  • promote sustainability

The LBCP are here to guide you through the process of following these regulations, especially if you are unsure of what next steps to take for yourself. We look out for long-term safety, inclusivity and performance of buildings.
