    Hello,

    Quite a straight forward one.. I hope!

    I have a garage (separate building to the house) and wish to remove the garage door, brick up the opening and install a regular upvc door + window.

    The garage is no longer accessible for cars due to a wall (it was this way when we bought the house) so is being used as a general storage space.

    Can I go ahead and do this or will I need permission?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Listed Building? Conservation Area?

    Sorry, should have mentioned. No, none of the above.

    You could fit the door and window. But IMO, that's an interesting set up there, and it would be spoilt with a standard horrible plastic door and window. Give it some thought on design.

    Will do, I'm not really decided on the design yet.

    Does it sound like a case of 'crack on' or am I likely to need planning?
