9 What is the ‘Building Regulations Advisory Committee’? g. such as Approved Documents – see above). 10 What is ‘type approval’? (Building Act 1984 Sections 12 and 13) Type approval is where the Secretary of State is empowered to approve a particular type of building matter as complying, either generally or specifically, with a particular requirement of the Building Regulations. This power of approval is normally delegated by the Secretary of State to the local council or other nominated public body.
If, on the other hand, the magistrates rule in favour of the local authority, then the local authority is entitled to recover any expenses that they have incurred. Be sure of your facts before you ask a magistrates’ court for a ruling! 2 What happens if the plans mean building over an existing sewer etc.? (Building Act 1984 Section 18) Before the local authority can approve a plan for building work which means having to first erect a building or extension over an existing sewer or drain, they must notify and seek the advice of the water authority.
If the local authority rejects the initial notice for any reason, then the approved inspector can appeal to a magistrates’ court for a ruling. If still dissatisfied, he can appeal to the crown court. Cancellation of initial notice (Building Act 1984 Sections 52 and 53) If work has not commenced within three years (beginning the date on which the certificate was accepted), the local authority can cancel the initial notice. If an approved inspector is unable to carry out or complete his functions, or is of the opinion that there is a contravention of the Building Regulations, then he can cancel the initial notice lodged with the local authority.
