Window reduction

Window reduction

Plan to reduce window height at rear of house from 1500mm to 1070mm, the gap will be filled by brick/roughcast (raising the bottom of the window by 430mm). Do I need a building warrant?

    Thanks for your question. No you would not require building warrant for this however there are a few things to consider.

    The width of the window is not changed, the lintel at the top of the window is not altered, the room the window serves still meets the required daylight and ventilation requirements (not applicable if the room is a kitchen, utility, bathroom) the window is not acting as an escape window (maybe required if the room is bedroom or living area) the wall infill and new window should meet current building regulations.

    We trust this answers your question.

    Thankyou, Do I Need Permission.
