Further Information

Planning Permission
This is usually required if you intend to alter your home in any way such as an extension, loft conversion, changing the use of a building (from a house to a shop, for example) or dividing part of your house for use as a separate dwelling (two storey home into separate flats). Planning permission is also required in many other situations so it is well worth contacting us to discuss your ideas and plans and for us to advise accordingly. Even a simple case of adding a driveway to your home may, in some cases, require planning permission.

There are also other permissions that are required the most common being for Listed Buildings, proposals in Conservation areas, sites with Tree Preservation Orders (TPO's) and Party Wall Agreements. A Party Wall agreement will be very important when you wish to build onto an existing wall shared between yourselves and your neighbour, or create any structure that comes into contact with a shared wall, even if you do not alter the shared wall.

Building Regulations

Once you have planning permission approval, the next stage will be to get building regulation approval.  Whereas planning permission approval ensures that the building does not break any laws,  fits in with the local environments and is not affectively a blot on the landscape , the focus is then turned to the manner in which you construct the building. For example you may be granted planning Permission but the building is constructed very badly with poor workmanship which could be unsafe for its inhabitants.  Building Regulations exists to ensure that any work follows a strict and thorough set of rules.  These rules vary from the type of insulation to be used in a building, and its resistance to heat loss, to the location of stairs, direction of door opening in proximity to stairs and many other energy-saving and safety conscious issues.

In summary, Building Regulations exist to protect you and future users of the building.
