Planning Drawings for a Basement

 

 

 Converting a basement can be a cost effective way to increase your living space. It adds value to your home and avoids the time, effort and costs associated with moving home.Converting an existing residential cellar or basement into a living space is in most cases unlikely to require planning permission as long as it is not a separate unit or unless the usage is significantly changed or a light well is added, which alters the external appearance of the property.

As a property owner it is your responsibility to get the relevant permission if you plan to convert your basement. Most basement conversion may come under permitted or lawful development. However, permission is required where your basement conversion design exceeds specified limits and conditions. Going ahead with building works without obtaining relevant permissions may result in a fine or imprisonment, or both.


It is important to note that regardless of whether or not your conversion requires planning permission or not, you will need to submit scaled architectural drawings of your proposals to your local authority.
