White Render on Red Brick House

Postby chet28 » Wed Jul 04, 2007 5:08 pm

Would I need planning permission to completely render (in white) a detached house which is predominately red brick? The house already has an extension which the bricks are in a slighly different colour. All the houses in the neighbour hood are similar (including mine) and are built from red brick except the upper half of the front/back walls are pebbledashed. Some houses on the street have replaced the upper half pebbledash with white render.

Also, are there any issues to consider from a building regulations point of view?

Simply Build It

Generally speaking you would not need planning permission to do this to a domestic dwelling, unless your building was listed or in or adjacent a conservation area! Best thing to do ids ring your local planning dept to be safe!

However permission under the Building Regs is now require for this type of work though under Part L of the Building Regulation if you renovate a thermal element you now have to upgrade it! SPeak to your locla Building Control Dept!
