Planning document searches

The planning documents you can view when making an online application search are currently unavailable while we update the system. Application searches are working as normal so you can see the application, you just won't be able to access the associated documents. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Approved documents to help you comply with regulations

A series of approved documents provide practical guidance on ways to comply with the requirements of the building regulations. 

Each approved document contains:

  • general guidance on the performance expected of materials and building work in order to comply with each of the requirements
  • practical examples and solutions on how to achieve compliance for some of the more common building situations

The approved documents are available to view on the Planning Portal (Building Regulations) website.
