A Garage Conversion does not involve a change of use as such and UK Building Regulations will therefore only apply to the structural alterations involved and to any other building controlled works such as drainage.
On many occasions a Garage Conversion requires little more than the infilling of the existing garage doorway with a suitable construction. This most often is largely made up of a window. Any infill will need to be supported by either foundations or suitable lintels. This is a structural alteration and as such requires building regulation approval.
In particular care should be taken to ensure that suitable damp proof courses are incorporated to prevent water ingress at the new window reveals and where the new infill abuts the existing walls.
