9. Do I need an application for internal alterations to my house

Yes, if the alterations are of a structural nature such as the removal or part removal of a load-bearing construction - for example, a wall, partition, joist, beam or chimney breast.

You also need approval if, in altering a house, work is necessary to maintain the means of escape in case of fire.
