Changes to the Approved Documents

Revised Parts F and L, and new parts O and S of The Building Regulations came into force on 15 June 2022. Even if an application is deposited in advance of the 15 June 2022, all plots on that application must commence on site with valid work before 15 June 2023. If they do not, then the additional requirements of the revised Parts F and L, and new parts O and S of the Regulations will have to be complied with. This may need significant re-design, and plan re-check. 

Please note:

These transitional arrangements will apply to all Building Regulations applications where Parts F, L, O or S would apply.  This will typically include:

  • ‘new build’ projects
  • extensions,
  • alterations,
  • changes of use works, and
  • any other controlled building work described in Regulation 3 where compliance with parts F, L, O  or S would be triggered.
