Costs of Excavating a Basement Under Front Garden

Postby carbar » Mon Aug 19, 2013 11:48 am


I'm trying to find out approximate costs of digging up my front garden for a basement.

I've already spoken to my local council and they said that as long as the basement was no bigger than the current house footprint, I should be allowed to do it.

Another article on this website mentioned a cost of around £3000/metre, but I'm not sure what that means. Is that per square metre of basement floorspace?

you will need to have plans drawn so an accurate price can be produced
