Yes, you will need approval to make internal alterations to your home either
- if the alterations are of a structural nature e.g. the removal or part removal of a load bearing wall, or removal of part or the whole of a chimney,
- or if they affect fire safety e.g. changed layouts, etc.
Generally, if the alteration involves the insertion of a beam or lintel or will affect the stability of the building then the alteration is a structural one.
If you are unsure if the alteration will require approval then seek the advice of an expert or contact us.
