Consider Converting Your Garage? Unlock the Potential of Your Space

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 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.
