The Local Authority Building Control requires detailed plans for all garage conversions. These plans need to include a detailed specification covering the structure, materials and methods to be used in the conversion work.

As approved partners of the LABC, we can supply you with detailed plans and a specification for your garage conversion that will be approved by your local authority.

This means that once the plans are done, you can get competitive quotes for the building work, safe in the knowledge the finished conversion will conform to all the latest regulations.

Garage conversions rarely require planning permission, as long as they are integral to the house. But they often require that a covenant placed on the property, which prohibits use of the garage for anything other than storage, is overturned before approval can be given. This involves making a full planning application to the local authority; but, unlike normal planning applications, no fee is charged by the authority.


We offer the following benefits:

We cover all of Kent

Free checks made to ascertain whether the garage is suitable for conversion

Visits available at a time to suit you

Full specification for building control approval

Free consultation

Fixed fee planning permission with no hidden extras


Whether you have any questions or if you just want to book a visit, we’ll be happy to hear from you. Just call us on 01634 757355.
