    Default Planning Permission Question

    When my house was built about 8 years ago the builders laid a foundation attached to the side of the house for the owners to build a garage, we were advised by the solicitor when we bought that we have planning permission to build the garage when we wanted, there is a style for the estate and some houses have the garage.

    My Question...

    Would I need to re-apply for planning permission to build the garage and instead of putting in an up and over door put in a window so I could use it as a study. I wouldn't be putting access into it from the house.

    Cheers

    I would just check it out with the planners, and I am sure that once planning permission is granted you then have a limited amount of time to do the building otherwise the permission runs out. I think the time limit is 5 years but not sure but deffo on a time limit

    From what I understand if you don't start the work there is a time limit. Ih however, you have started work...i.e foundations then you should be okay. Planning Department will advise, and will also confirm if they have inspected and passed the foundations (In some areas this comes under Building Control).

    Planning rules were changed/relaxed a little while ago allowing people to errect buildings such as garages and porches without the need for planning permission, a lot depends whether its a fixed brick garage. If its pre-fabricated concrete garage which most are, and its 2m away from adjoining property no permission is needed. (would need to check distance) but I think it was around 2m.

    When I had a double garage errected at our Lancashire home, and which had a solid concrete base of 10" thick 20'x17'.6" wide. I was utterly amazed to be told that no planning permission was needed. In fact I asked if they could just pop out to the property to double check, which he did, and he confirmed no permission was needed. I was gobsmacked. Always worth checking of course.

    If planning permision has already been granted I think it lasts 3yrs after which time it expires, but it may vary from area to area, ring them up and ask.

    A new Planning Application may be required as you are intending to erect a study not a garage, but you may get away with a change of use application, but the Planning Fee would be the same so you may aswell adapt the design to suit you and a make a fresh application.

    I am an Architectural Technician and would be willing to do the plans for a change of use or fresh application, or if you just want some advice give me a call on 07970411093 or PM me.

    Anything over 24 months WILL need to be re applied for, BUT, if your building on the back of your house, less than 10ft square and 10ft high, you no longer need any permission

    He's already said its at the side of his house and lets face it you can't swing a cat around in anything less than 10ft square.

    I think you have 3 years from the date the planning permission was granted to complete the build.

    What size of garge are you looking to build? We built a 5m x 5m garage after submitting drawings etc everything was passed ok as there were no objections from the neighbours. When i phoned the council to arrange for someone to come out to inspect the finished garage to sign it off i was told "Everything's ok you don't need a visit from an inspector due to the size of the garage".

    If the foundations are in. You fine. As a builder myself I turned a mates garage into a bar for him and his mates. I'd build it as a garage and get it passed. Get a joiner in to build you a stud wall a few feet behind the garage door just to keep a few thing in if need be and fit a roller do as it takes up less space. If you want put a window in the stud wall. But i just fitted a better window in his side wall to let in more light.
