Your local authority might have a list of local architects, surveyors and builders who specialise in renovation work which you could ask to see when choosing a contractor for the work to your home.

We will not allow you to carry out improvements to your home which we believe will reduce the value of your home, be unsafe or cause a nuisance to your neighbours.
