Outline Planning Permission cannot be granted for a proposed change in the use of land or buildings. We would advise against applying for Outline Planning Permission for such schemes as alterations to a residential dwelling and would advise that you submit a pre-application enquiry instead if you are keen to know if we would allow the scheme in principle before you apply.
