Garage Conversions

Do I need planning permission and/or building regulations for my garage conversion?

Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 the permitted development regime covering garage conversions changed and planning permission is not usually required, providing the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building.

Sometimes permitted development rights have been removed from some properties with regard to garage conversions and therefore you should contact your local planning authority before proceeding, particularly if you live on a new housing development or in a conservation area.

The conversion of a garage, or part of a garage, into habitable space will normally require approval under the Building Regulations.
