Building Control

Welcome to our Building Control Hub

The realm of building safety has seen several legislative changes in recent years, largely due to the outcomes of the Hackitt Review.

Amongst these changes is the Building Safety Bill, which includes 53 recommendations to drive cultural change and safety improvements within the construction industry.

Introduced to Parliament last July, the Bill is the next step in ground-breaking reforms to make homes in England and Wales safer and to give residents and homeowners more rights, powers and protections. It will overhaul regulations and set out a clear pathway on how residential buildings should be constructed, maintained and made safe.

The Bill introduces a three-stage gateway process to improve fire safety standards and will be regulated by a newly appointed Building Safety Regulator, which must sign off each gateway before progressing to the next.
