    1 to 2 bed conversion

    I'm looking at buying a property

    It has two 1 bed flats

    It was refused planning for two 2 bed flats

    These one beds are big enough to put a partition between the huge master bedroom and add an additional bedroom

    Thus making them two beds - this doesnt require planning permission right?

    Yes it does. You're doubling the potential occupants of the property which will impact local services, infrastructure etc.........

    It'll also require Building Regulation approval.
    There is always scope for misinterpretation.

    If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

    Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.


      Is this 100% sure?

      I'm sure that i read on this site that you dont need planning permission to add a partition to split a bedroom into two

      Thanks for your replies


        Planning permission for dwellinghouses is granted by the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order, but a flat is excluded as that is not considered to be a dwellinghouse.

        All development in a flat needs planning permission granted by the local planning authority.
