Yes, in general, although there is at least on known incident with an
investor who couldn't get the approval.

No, it isn't. The public buildings have stricter demands against fire risk
and any building material should be certified in this matter. That's the
biggest problem we've got here at the moment.

Any insulation works should be submitted to local officials in order to get
the approval (because it changes the outline of building). There's no
chance to insulate public buildings (see answer 2), and there shouldn't be
probably any larger obstacles to insulate with straw a private one (I
haven't heard of anyone insulating with straw in Poland yet).
