Building Standards and Public Safety

Use the quick links at the top and menu on the left of this page to find out more about the services provided by the Building Standards & Public Safety Team.

Building regulations are the minimum standard of construction you need to achieve if you are erecting, altering, extending, converting or demolishing a building.  A building warrant is the permission required before you start work.  Some work does not require a building warrant, but the regulations may still apply - please check our Building Warrants and Completion Certificates page for more information.
