Re: Re: Building control
This sounds fine in theory, but its not going to happen.
Firstly, Planning and Building Regulations are separate strands of law.
Secondly the administration you suggest is simply not affordable at the present time.
As for being workable in principle – I sincerely doubt it can be done effectively or competently.
The proof of this is the new Disability Access Certificate – Building Control simply hadn’t enforced Part M.
On the other hand employment legislation specifically supported persons with disabilities = an unavoidable collision.
and that gave builders encouragement to disregard Part M as well, or interpret it as they saw fit.
