answer text <p>Building control officers and Approved Inspectors are required to take all reasonable steps to satisfy themselves that building work meets all relevant requirements in the Building Regulations. This duty applies equally to the installation of external wall insulation and cladding on tall buildings and building control officers would have the opportunity to consider the plans for the work and to inspect it. Building control officers also have powers to take samples of and test building materials where they consider it necessary to do so.</p> more like this

answer text <p>It is the responsibility of people carrying out building work to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations. As well as requirements relating to fire safety (Schedule 1 of the Building Regulations, Part B), requirements relating to structures (Part A), resistance to moisture (Part C) and conservation of fuel and power (Part L) will be relevant. Building owners should take account of all these considerations when planning work on external wall surfaces.</p><p>On 30 June, we published a note covering the Government Building Safety Programme at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/explanatory-note-on-safety-checks-and-testing" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/explanatory-note-on-safety-checks-and-testing</a></p><p>That note makes clear that if a landlord chooses to take down and replace cladding, care should be taken to consider the impact that removal may have on the other wall elements, especially insulation, and therefore on the overall fire integrity of the building as well as other Building Regulation requirements.</p>

answer text <p>The Building Regulations and supporting guidance set out the requirements for external walls in relation to fire safety. Advice to all building control bodies was published on 14 July, which highlighted the key Building Regulations' guidance requirements when cladding work on high rise buildings over 18 metres tall is undertaken.

answer text <p>Generally the installation of cladding will be development that requires planning permission. There may be circumstances where the external appearance of the building is not materially altered where planning permission is not required, depending on the scale of the operation, but this is a matter for each local planning authority to determine in the first instance.</p> more like this
