2 dwellings into 1 (amalgamation) - which LPA's do not need planning permission?

Recommended Posts


I'm looking at turning 2 dwellings (flats) into 1 dwelling with internal works only. LPA is Waverley. Struggling to find concrete information of whether I could do this without applying for planning permission

I have not undertaken a check on every local authority, so I can't be sure.

Most will not have the local plan updated to prevent this. But some do.

The other factor is whether the proposal would result ina material change of use if it had the potential for significant planning consequences. This might occur when other policies exist for retention of dwellings with say housing targets.

You could always submit a certificate of proposed use or development to see as to whether the amalgamation is lawful in Waverly.
