Renovation of top floor flat (2nd floor). I'm planning to knock down a couple of walls to create a open plan kitchen/living area. I've had a report done by a structural engineer which suggests that the walls are safe to knock down. The flat is share of freehold, do I need to get planning permission? If so what is the procedure and how long can it take?

Thank you

If planning permission has been refused and you have appealed unsuccessfully, then there is no further appeal. You can challenge the decision in the High Court but only on procedural matters and even if you are successful, the case will be sent back to the Planning Inspectorate for re-determination.

If the Council have applied for costs against you, I would advise seeking professional planning help. If costs are awarded, the Council will work out their time and costs and send you an invoice. If agreement can't be reached over the amount, the matter can be referred to a Costs Court.

Regarding the second post, internal changes do not usually need planning permission (provided there is no restrictive changes on the original planning permission).

Building Regulation approval will most probably be required - speak to the Building Control team at your local Council ( or an Approved Buillding Inspector). If it is needed, it can be done using a Building Notice or a Full Plans submission.
