Our main objective is to ensure that all newly erected, extended and altered buildings within the boundaries of Carmarthenshire County Council, are constructed to a standard that protects people's health, safety, welfare and convenience. We achieve this by ensuring that all building works meet the requirements of the building regulations, which set out minimum standards for all building works.
l The regulations cover structural stability, fire precautions, means of escape, damp-proofing, sound insulation, ventilation, drainage, energy conversation and access and facilities for disabled people.
l We receive approximately 1,500 building regulations applications and carry out 11,000 site inspections per year. The projects range from internal alterations to dwellings to multi-million pound commercial developments.
