Types of Flue and Chimney Materials

    Important Note


Flues are controlled services as defined in Regulation 2 of the Building Regulations, that is to say they are services in relation to which Part J of Schedule 1 imposes requirements. If renovation, refurbishment or repair amounts to or involves the provision of a new or replacement flue liner, it is "building work" within the meaning of Regulation 3 of the Building Regulations. "building work" must not be undertaken without prior notification to the local authority. It is your responsibility to obtain the necessary approval.
