Integral garage development

Does converting a garage to a room, within the body of a house, require planning permission? I will not be extending the house footprint in any way.

  • Hello Richard, Not usually, but you should check with the council to be on the safe side. Should any windows you install cause disruption to your neighbours, there may be an issue. Thanks

  • Sorry, also, please note the following: - Check for any conditions on your Title Deed. Some new build homes have the stipulation that the garage should remain as parking, so you may still need permission; - Standalone garages are more likely to require ‘change of use’ planning permission when converted to habitable rooms (check with your local planning authority); - You will need to get planning permission if your property is listed or it's in a conservation area.
