What are Building Regulations?
The Building Regulations are legal requirements that apply to building work and are aimed at achieving minimum standards of construction to ensure the health and safety of people in or around buildings. They are also concerned with energy conservation and with access and facilities for disabled people.
What is Building Control?
Building Control is here to assist in the building process to meet the minimum standards set out in the Building Regulations and to safeguard the community from bad building practice. It helps create a sustainable local environment for the benefit of the residents of Mid Sussex.
