Building Regulations

Part L Building Regulations are concerned with fuel and power conservation. The Part L document dealing with historic buildings is L1B (2010), as amended in 2010, 2011 and 2013, and viewable online.

There are exemptions or special considerations for listed buildings, and for buildings in conservation areas and National Parks. But the exemptions only apply if normal compliance would unacceptably affect the character or appearance of the buildings.

If you are unsure you should contact the building control team at your local authority to check if building regulations approval is needed.

The following types of work may need building regulations approval:

  • window replacement
  • re-roofing
  • rendering

Please remember that building regulations approval is a separate process to planning permission or listed building consent and in some cases all may be needed.

If you have any questions our Historic Buildings Team is happy to help. If your building is not in the National Park please contact your local authority.
