SOUTH Somerset District Council’s building control team is hoping to educate people on how to apply and progress with work on their homes or businesses.

Cllr Shane Pledger, right, portfolio holder for building control, said: “Building regulations are vital to make sure new building, or alteration or extension work on existing buildings, is safe, durable and reaches required standards.

“They can seem complicated, but we’re here to help.”
