Planning and Building Control

In this section

Planning is about making the best use of land. This could be for housing, business, industrial, agricultural, or recreation use. It is about making places where people want to live, work and play. Places which are safe and inviting and sustainable.

Building Regulations apply to most building work. It is important to find out if you need permission.
