Or for building a new construction on the site of an old one a la The Batcave?
I would ask my neighbour who happens to be both a chartered surveyor and the MD of a construction company, but he's away on business at the moment. :x~:-x~:mad:

Ask Elliot (X3ELS) he's done the very thing you are discussing and I'm sure he said something about planning permission.
