Our ‘flat’ is built above our stores/garage. What do we need in place to build a set of stairs connecting them? Cheers

    Hi John.

    As this is a flat/apartment you would need both planning permission and building warrant for these works.

    As the stairs are going into a garage/store this would need to be separated from the living area to minimise the risk of fire spread.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
