Garage conversion into a business premises

Garage conversion into a business premises

Do we need permission to convert an existing detached garage which is well separated from the house, and the neighbours, into a music studio.

    Thank you for your question.

    Planning permission for change of use will be required if the music studio is to be used as a business i.e. if you will be renting it out to others and being paid to do so. If the music studio is for personal use only, and no business is taking place, then it is likely that planning permission for change of use will not be required.

    In both cases, a building warrant will be required.

    Please feel free to get in touch if you wish to discuss further.
