What you should consider while planning a house extension London
Before you get your plans drawn you should take into account the following important points
* the size and shape of your house and garden and from where the access will be
* soil conditions on site and any history of flooding
* where the utilities such as electricity and especially the existing drainage are located
* boundaries and party walls – if your extension project is subject to the Party Wall Act
Put your ideas into design drawings
In the majority of cases the help of a designer will be required to provide designs for the project and consult what is feasible with the space and what is not. The drawings will help you visualize your project and make sure that you’re clear about the finished outcome before you begin. Scaled drawings will also help the builder confirm what the finished project will be like, down to minor details such as the position of the power sockets, light fittings and radiators.
The services of an architect to draw up your plans and other consultants such as a structural engineer to produce drawings and calculations for Building Regulation purposes are required as part of the planning application you may need to submit to your local council.
Do I Need Planning Permission for House Extension in London?
Planning permission is not usually required, and an extension is considered to be permitted development, subject to specified limits and conditions. However, permission is required when your project exceeds the limits or if you live in a listed building or a Conservation Area.
You will need to consult with an architect whether you need to get a planning permission or not.
Even if you do not need a planning permission you are still required to notify the local council, who will then consult your neighbours and consider the impact of your proposal should they object.
Confirmation whether your conversion is subject to The Party Wall Act 1996 is also required under which you must give adjoining owners notice.
Do I Need Building Regulations Approval?
Much like any new structural work and major home alterations, house extensions in London require Building Regulations approval and sign off to ensure safety measures are in place.
The specific regulations that apply will depend on the type of extension you have.
By default, the elements covered by building regulation include:
drainage, heat-producing appliances, cavity wall insulation, electrics, etc.
You have to notify your local council of the upcoming project by submitting a building notice or full plans application. A building control officer will probably have to inspect the building work several times during the project to make sure that everything is satisfactory and in compliance with the Building Regulations so they can issue a certificate of completion.
With your design finalized and any required approvals in place, your conversion project is on the RIGHT way to success.
