We live in a conservation area and are getting quotes for a new window to be fitted. Theres no opening at the minute so brickwork removal needed.
Im not to sure about the builder who came around.. getting other quotes but would like to know correct procedures myself.

1. Do we need building control?
2. Window is 800 wide so how much oversize each side should the lintel be?
3. do we need damproof or cavity closers etc?

Thanks for any help as 1st builder hasnt mentioned building control etc and it was a neighbour who commented about it.

you have made it more clear to me in 3 words than the builder who came around for 30 mins!

Thanks again
