Residential Conversions In London

How do building regulations differ from planning permission? Some homeowners aren’t sure they need building regulation approval for work that they are planning on carrying out. Planning permission isn’t all that’s required (if it is required on your particular project). Most of the time with most types of projects you will need building regulation approval. It can be a confusing process and Detailed Planning are here to help every step of the way.

Planning permission relates to the principle of development, covering issues such as siting, scale and appearance. Building regulations deal with technical issues such as structural stability, fire risk, drainage, energy conservation, etc. The other key difference between the two is that planning permission is given by the local council and building regulations are administered by private companies.

Building regulations are required on residential renovations when an existing property is being altered or refurbished but still remains as a residential dwelling after the work has finished. Whereas, a conversion is when there is a change in the use of a building to create a house (or flats). For example, buying an old derelict warehouse building and converting it into separate flats.
