What is Building Control?
Building regulations dictate the design and construction of buildings as well as the provision of services, fittings and equipment. They are the minimum standards laid down by the government.
Middlesbrough Council's Building Control service oversees the regulations set out in the Building Act 1984 and other relevant building legislation.
- ensures that all building work complies with relevant regulations
- ensures the health and safety of people in and around buildings is maintained
- ensures that the welfare and convenience of people with disabilities are properly catered for
- advises on legislation about conservation of fuel and power
