4. Assessment of plans for compliance with the Building Regulations

What we will do.

Where plans do not show compliance with the regulations or additional information is required, we will write detailing what is required.

What we will not do.

As the enforcement body for building regulation matters in East Devon, the building control service cannot design building works or instruct how to make works compliant as the responsibility for design remains with the architect, designer, agent, builder and ultimately, the building owner.

What you will need to do (including a builder, architect or agent acting for you).

Provide revised or supplementary information to Building Control with sufficient detail to determine compliance with the building regulations. Ensure that any amendments are clearly labelled and the plans are renumbered.


Any information should be provided in advance of works on site.
