Why are Building Regulations and Building Control necessary?
The simple answer is that Building Regulations and hence the Building Control Service are necessary to ensure that an acceptable standard of health and safety is achieved for people in and around buildings. They also require adequate access and facilities for disabled persons as well as specifying measures to control energy consumption. However, it must be remembered that they are not a control of quality. You should make your own separate supervisory arrangements in this respect, should you consider it necessary.
