Garage conversions

You will need to apply for Building Regulations approval if you plan to convert a garage.

This is because you are changing a non habitable space into a habitable space.  This would be classified as a 'material change of use'.

The Building Regulations will help to ensure, 

  • The garage is safe and sound;
  • That it is water and weatherproof;
  • It is insulated for comfort and energy conservation;
  • It is ventilated to assist healthy living.

To assist you we have produced a Guide to Garage Conversions which can be downloaded from this website. 

If you are unable to visit the Civic Centre, we will be happy to call at your premises to discuss your application or any queries you may have.  You can arrange a visit by contacting Building Control on 01792 635636 or using our form to Request a building control visit.
