Building Permit

A Building Permit in the UK construction industry is an official approval issued by a local council or building control body, allowing the commencement of a construction or renovation project. This permit ensures that the proposed work complies with national Building Regulations, planning laws, and local development codes, covering aspects such as structural integrity, fire safety, energy efficiency, and accessibility. Obtaining a building permit is a critical step before construction can begin, as it helps to ensure the safety and legality of the work being carried out.
