Building Control Advice - Fire and Water Regulations

Under the Fire Precautions Act 1971 the Fire Authority must be consulted If you are planning to build, convert or extend a building which will require a Fire Certificate

Local Authority Building Control Logo If you are planning to build, convert or extend a building which will require a Fire Certificate or be put to a use designated under the Fire Precautions Act 1971 , then the Fire Authority must be consulted.

This will be done by the Building Control Team as it is a requirement of current legislation.

The Building Notice Procedure cannot be used for a building put to a designated use under the Fire Precautions Act 1971. In such cases a Full Plans Procedure is necessary.

When you use the Full plans procedure, the Building Control Team will check your plans and consult appropriate authorities (such as fire and water authorities).
