You should check woth the local authority planning departmet on this , but if the house has its permittd development rights in tact you should be able to do this . The flat would not be able to have a seperate address but would be classed as ancillary to the dwelling.

Hat do you meen by
but if the house has its permittd development rights in tact


there has been some develpoment of the site, wherein a 6x5m workshop was built with full planning consent and an extension was built over existing garage, will this fall under "permittd development rights in tact"

Thanks

I'd agree with mK33...

The planning department would be the best people to speak to. They will be able to tell you if you have the 'permitted rights'
