Building Regulations

For your convenience, we include here download links to all relevant UK Building Regulations.

The Approved Documents are intended to provide guidance for some of the more common building situations. However, there may well be alternative ways of achieving compliance with the requirements. Thus there is no obligation to adopt any particular solution contained in an Approved Document if it is preferred to meet the relevant requirement in some other way.

They are given legal status by the Building Act 1984.

These documents are taken from the UK Planning Portal - http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/
