Internal walls - Planning Permission

You should not need to apply for planning permission for internal alterations including building or removing an internal wall.

If you live in a listed building, however, you will need listed building consent for any significant works whether internal or external.

Build Aviator's estimating service can help you plan your project by providing an accurate cost of the proposed changes. Find out more1.

Once costs have been estimated, the quick quote finance calculator2 from Selina Advance can take all of the hard work out of searching and securing the funds needed for your project.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) provide advice and guidance about how to safely carry out building work. Find out more using the link below.
