Planning and Building Control
Planning approval is required in order to legally carry out 'development'. Development can be physical building works or a change in the use of land or a building.
The Building Control function regulates the construction processes involved in the erection of a building, highlighting the elements of how a building is put together and in particular ensuring that the building has a safe structure.
