Do I need planning permission to convert my garage?

Many people find that their home is starting to feel a little too small for them, yet their property features a garage that they don't actually use for parking a vehicle. Rather than using the garage as an ad hoc storage facility for the items you're not sure where to put, it may be worth your time to think about having a garage conversion carried out.

In recent years there has been increasing interest in garage conversion work. When people find themselves using a garage for things other than parking a car, it makes sense to turn their garage into a purposely-converted room which suits their needs more closely. Whether you need an extra bedroom, home office, playroom for your children, or are just looking for more comfortable living space, we can professionally plan and convert your garage and make sure it's ideal for your intended purpose.

Whenever anyone thinks of having some building work or renovation, the first concern is invariably red tape. We can help you with this too. In terms of work like garage conversions, Falkirk Council has a reputation for being supportive. In most cases planning permission is not required for a garage conversion, but a Building Warrant must be obtained. This is a process which rarely takes longer than 15 working days and, as we mentioned, we will gladly help you with obtaining this.

If you currently don't use your garage to park your car in, we would encourage you to think about how you could make better use of the space. As providers of building, conversion and property maintenance throughout Stirling, Falkirk and the surrounding areas, we have the skills to provide you with the perfect garage conversion. With our help, you can enjoy having a brand new room that you can use and be proud of, rather than your current neglected garage.
