Planning Permission:

Planning permission is not generally required for installing or replacing electrical circuits. However, if you live in a listed building you are advised to contact your Local Planning Authority before carrying out any of our work.

Building Regulations:

If you are carrying out electrical installation work in your home or garden in England or Wales, you must comply with the rules in the Building Regulations. It is best to use an installer registered with a competent person scheme (a registered competent person) who can self-certify compliance with the Building Regulations. If an installer is not registered, then certain riskier jobs (identified as in the Building Regulations) will need to be inspected, approved and certified by:
  • A building control body ( your local authority or private approved inspector)
  • In England only, an electrician registered with a third- party certification scheme (a registered third-party certifier). The building control body or registered third-party certifier must be notified before work starts.
