A garage conversion usually falls into the category of permitted development. Permitted development rights allow householders to improve and extend their homes without the need to apply for planning permission. While the vast majority of our clients fall into this category, you will need to check there are no planning conditions attached to the use of the garage before you proceed. You will also need to check you are not in a conservation area or a listed building. Finally, if it is a stand alone garage you may need to apply for a change of use.
Permitted developments still fall under the remit of building control and as such you will need to meet the building control criteria. This includes making a building control application, building to all current regulations and passing inspections to achieve final certification. We take care of all this for you and we ensure your project is certified at the end. This is all included in our quotation price.
