3. Find out if you need building regulations

To check if you need building regulations, you can use the Planning Portal's interactive house.

There are two types of interactive house. They allow you to select building work for detached and semi-detached houses or flats, basements and businesses.

To use the interactive house, click on the area you wish to develop. The Planning Portal will advise whether building regulations are required and how to get approval.

You can find building regulations guidance for common building work projects. You can also read case studies of people's experiences when undertaking a number of the projects.
