Default Does installing a wood burning stove/boiler require any permissions?

Vaguely connected with my other question, what permissions, checks
etc. do we need to get, if any, to install a wood (possibly
multi-fuel) burning stove which will also provide some hot water?

I know there are regulations relating to hearths around the stove and
distance of the stove from walls and distance from anything
inflammable. Does one just have to conform to these requirements or
must a building inspector see that one has?

Having just done this - I wrote the earlier post!

There are two options:

1. DIY and go through Building Control (including all the fees, hassle,
inspections etc.)
2. Employ an approved HETAS engineer (see www.hetas.co.uk) then that
negates the requirement for Building Control to get involved!

I used the latter. I physically installed the fire, increased the size
of my hearth, added extra ventilation and plumbed it in etc. The HETAS
bod just installed the flue liner and all that side of it, checked the
rest met the regs (more physical location e.g clearances and
ventilation, he wasn't interested in the plumbing side) then he signed
it off.

Cheers

Peter

Thanks for the web site link, another one to add to my bookmarks.
