Do You Need To Change The Use Of A Property?

Changing the use of a building will in a lot of cases need planning permission, a good place to start is to confirm with the governing Council if planning permission is needed for the use you are looking to introduce.  Alternatively you could speak to a Chartered Town Planner will either be able to answer your question, or will be able to investigate the matter on your behalf.

If planning permission is needed then there is a planning process to go through that will be made easier with planning advice and assistance over the relevant planning documentation.  Also if planning permission is refused or only granted with with restrictions that you cannot accept, then they can assist through the appeal process.

Filling in the form above will provide you with a list of planning consultants and surveyors  who can assist you in the planning process.  They will be a mixture of Building Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Architects, planners and other people familiar and experienced with the application process.  On receiving their contact details you should enquire as to the experience and expertise to help you make a choice.  It should be useful for you to initially phone some of them and speak in general terms about your requirement.  Before appointing a consultant and placing an order you should ensure yourself that your chosen supplier has the relevant qualifications, licences, experience and insurance to provide the level of service that you require.  There is of course no obligation to use any of the property experts that you have been introduced to. can introduce you to property experts who can provide advice on planning, from whether planning permission is needed, how to go through the planning process, to what is likely to be accepted by the planning authority.

It is also important to consider any legal or other restrictions over the property.  These may appear in your Title Deeds.  Historic buildings will also have further requirements and permissions that will need to be taken into consideration.  In addition to meeting planning requirements you may also have Building Regulations requirements that you will also need to be in compliance with.

Assuming that an application for Planning Permission is needed, the next step is to determine what the Local Authorities have in their overall plan for the local area and how you can personalize your requirement to hopefully fit within this.  Getting a good understanding of how the application process works is important and it is also useful to get a good feel for how other people have approached similar situations.  A good planning consultant should be able to help you through this process, or if you want complete the process for you..
