I just purchased a house newbie in house/building related things. Also , i'm new into this website. So please excuse me if I have posted something
which I shouldn't be.

Due to various reasons I will need to block openings (Doors and Windows) in the wall to my property for a particular corner.

Hence, the french patio doors (Attached Image) needs to go away to make way for Fixed toughend glass.

My queries:

1) Is this change from Patio doors to Fixed glass the best solution? Alternative solution if there are any please suggest.
Just worried that by taking this door out and replacing a fixed glass might cause other damage to the property.

2) Cost involved in this exercise is £550 as per a quote from a builder. Is this justified?

3) I am hoping here, that I don't need to take any permission from council or organizations to carry out this task.

Get some quotes off Fensa registered window fitters as they will give you a Fensa certificate to avoid Building Control involvement.

Or as foxy said.

Shouldn't need planning permission but may cause problems with fire escape routes for building regs. As said get a local double glazing company to quote and they will know the escape route regs
