Planning permission

Planning permission is a system whereby local authorities can consent to building works by granting permission for the planned work. Garage conversions will often not need planning permission, as long as the work is internal and you do not plan to expand the structure of your property. Garage conversions are often covered under permitted development rights, which protect a number of home improvement work. However, these rights have been removed in a few areas by councils, especially in new builds, so it is always worth verifying with your local authority. If you are planning to undertake a garage conversion on a listed building or live in a conservation area, you will require planning permission. In addition, if any of the walls of your garage are shared walls with a neighbouring property, you will require a Party Wall Agreement.

You are required to abide by all building regulations related to your garage conversion whether or not you need planning permission. These building regulations cover elements of the conversion like insulation, escape routes, fire proofing and ventilation, so it is often a good idea to utilise an architect to draft technical drawings and to approve designs in order to ensure compliance with these regulations. You'll likely still need to submit plans describing the change of use of the garage to your local authority. If planning permission is considered from the start of the project, it is much less likely that there will be any trouble further down the road. The vast majority of planning permission applications in England are approved.
