Rules and regulations around planning permission for any home improvement can seem like a minefield at times, and those around basement conversions may seem particularly so. We’ve put together this page to clear up some of the planning permission rules surrounding London basement conversions and simplify the process for you.
Please look at this page as a guide only. Your specific requirements will dictate whether or not you need planning permission. The best way to find out the requirements for your own basement conversion plans is to check with your Local Authority.
