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.
