So a garage after plans are done and planning consent is given costs £10,000
to build (unless it is a kit). The cost of the BSI increases the cost by a
mere £100 of 1%? However implementing the BSI will cost just a little bit
more depending on what is needed. I'd be more worried about the cost
implications of implementing the BS than the cost of the standard itself.

And by the way what happens when you put an application under the freedom of
information act to explain the planning condition to comply with BS 5837? Do
you just get passed onto the BS website?

Scott:

Quote: "SC INSERTION.  See insertions above.  The information IS readily
available.  In the context of developing a site a hundred or so for BS5387
cannot seriously be considered an impediment to developing the site.  THat's
even if the developer wanted to purchase and understand BS5387 personally,
but it is much more likely that the developer will hire an expert who
spreads the cost of BS5387 over however many projects they do in the 5-10
year life of the standard.  Kalfka was a novelist in his spare time and
worked for an insurance company (Generale) by day... he'd understand the
business model."

What about the individual who wants to build a garage, say, on his property
which includes a number of large trees? He's told he has to comply with
BS5837, but he's got to pay through the nose to get it or hire a consultant?
Not very fair really.

Your 'it is what it is' argument doesn't make it right does it?
