Such a project may also require listed building consent as well as planning permission: this is a separate application and approval demanded by the council, and it is likely that more detailed drawings will be required, showing the present building and the proposed additions. Building Regulations Whether your new development does or does not require planning permission, it will need building regulations approval. Building regulations are rules approved by parliament, laid down to ensure that minimum design and construction standards are achieved in domestic and commercial buildings.

There are often clear parameters within which the developer must remain, and boundaries around the property that must be respected. If there is any uncertainty about what is and is not permissible, then the best place to start is the local planning office. So before you go to the expense of professional building plans, take a sketch of your proposals showing clearly all the existing and immediately neighbouring properties, and discuss your plans with your designated officer. You may find that planning permission is not required, and that the work falls within permissible development, in which case only building regulations requirements need to be met.

These plans will include any new drainage, because drainage is subject to building regulations, but they may not include the other services such as gas, electricity and central heating. Where these are absent an additional sketch plan should be prepared showing what is expected: for instance, additional radiators to be added to the existing system, and their location; electrical power points and light fittings, how many and where. All these will depend on what the new conversion is to be. It may be an annexe requiring kitchen facilities, or it may simply be an additional reception, or a dining room, where these services are not so important.
