I wish we’d had the garage converted years ago, I’ve finally got a proper space to run my business. Plus I’ve finally got rid of that rubbish we had in garage!
Planning permission is not usually needed for a garage conversion, unless you live in a conservation area or your home is a listed building.
Minimal impact to your home during the renovation process, you’ll just need to clear your garage out ready for the conversion.
Typically a garage conversion takes 4 to 5 weeks to complete. This will depend mainly on internal finishing and size of the garage itself.

Do I Need Planning Permission For A Garage Conversions?
Planning permission is not usually required, providing the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building.
If your intention is to convert a garage into a separate house (regardless of who will occupy it), then planning permission may be required no matter what work is involved. We advise that you discuss such proposals with your local planning authority to ensure that any work you do is lawful and correctly permissioned.
Sometimes permitted development rights have been removed from some properties with regard to garage conversions and therefore you should contact your local planning authority before proceeding, particularly if you live on a new housing development or in a conservation area.
Where work is proposed to a listed building, listed building consent may be required.
Please note: The permitted development allowances described here apply to houses and not to:
Flats and maisonettes
Converted houses or houses created through the permitted development rights to change use
