Considering to Convert Your Garage? Homz Can Help You With That

What do you use your garage for? If it’s turned into more of a store room (or a junk yard for that old exercise bike) than a safe spot to park the car, then maybe it’s time to consider making better use of what could be a valuable asset. A garage conversion is one of the speediest and most affordable routes to adding floor space: a typical scheme creating a new home office or playroom can often be completed in little more than a week.

Do You Need a Full Planning Permission for a Garage Conversion?

In most cases, Full Planning Permission is not required for a typical garage conversion project in the UK, as long as the work falls under permitted development rights. This means that you can convert your garage into living space without seeking Full Planning Permission Application from your local council, as long as certain conditions are met, such as the conversion not exceeding a certain size and not causing harm to the surrounding area.

However if that’s the case you may then need to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate or a Householder Planning Application if the work falls under PD rights.

Depending on what you are planning to do, in addition to looking great your project may also require some kind of planning permission. The good news is that Homz also have in-house planning consultants who can work with your architect to make sure that your design not only looks great but it also meets all of the necessary planning criteria.

Our Designers Will Draw Up The Plans

Making a planning application is a risky, and it becomes riskier the less you’re prepared for it. This is because accurate drawings with correct technical information are a prerequisite to both getting permission and being able to build what you get permission for.

Our Chartered Town Planners Will Manage Your Application

Larger garage conversions or the purpose of the new proposal use of the space in designated areas or involving listed buildings, are also likely to require a full planning permission. Our Chartered Town Planning Consultants at Homz have full knowledge of the ever-changing planning policies that any project will be subject to. So, their help could be indispensable — especially if your project is in a designated area of which carries restrictions such as a Conservation Area or AONB.
