Tameside Council Planning
Find out whether your home improvement or large scale commercial project needs planning permission or building regulations approval.
Do I need planning permission to convert my loft into a room or to construct a dormer roof extension ?
Yes, and due to the complex nature of the fire regulations you are strongly advised to discuss your Loft Conversion proposals directly with a Building Control Surveyor.
In a conservation area all roof additions or alterations require planning permission. Purely internal works do not need planning consent, so boarding out the loft would not usually need planning permission.
Do I need planning permission to convert my garage into a room ?
Under normal circumstances you don’t need planning permission to convert a garage into a room, unless there is a condition on the original planning consent for your house which prevents you from doing so.
