I'm considering a opening up a badly designed built in wardrobe in my flat's bedroom which is currently just a cavity with stud wall and a door frame (and a massive waste of space..)
The intention is to knock down the stud wall only to allow a properly fitted cupboard to be installed into the newly widened cavity.
The stud wall currently runs from the load bearing wall we share with the adjacent flat to another load bearing wall - neither of which we intend to touch.
I will of course speak to our new neighbors out of courtesy before we do anything, but do we need to get a party wall agreement signed prior to doing this work ?
Also - any idea whether this would require planning permission from the council ?
