Local authority building control teams in England and Wales help people comply with the building regulations by giving feedback on plans and providing site inspections.

The local authority has a general duty to see that building work complies with the Building Regulations, unless it is under the control of an approved inspector. Only local authorities have the power to enforce standards if things go wrong.
