Letter about changes to the Building Regulations 2010 and Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) 2010

Document

Detail

This letter informs building control bodies about changes to the Building Regulations 2010 and the Building (Approved Inspectors etc.) 2010 which include a simplification of the definition of ‘room for residential purposes’.

Also, it is no longer mandatory to provide a statement to accompany a building notice when inserting cavity wall insulation, as was previously required at regulation 13 (3) of the 2000 Building Regulations.
