Building Control in Hyndburn

Building Control regulates the way buildings are constructed to ensure that they are safe and fit for use.  Building Regulations achieves other objectives such as energy efficiency, pollution control and access for all.

Building works that involve creating something new or to modify/extend an existing building will usually require a Building Regulation Application.  Any person carrying out building work needs to ensure that the works comply with the Regulations.  Some types of work will be exempt and an application will not need to be submitted.

Building Control Officers have a good working relationship with local builders and aim to offer a fast, reliable and responsive service.

You are also advised that Planning Permission may be required for certain building works.  For further details please visit our Planning Section of the website.
