Building Regulations Ealing

Situated around eight miles west of Charing Cross, the West London borough of Ealing has been occupied for over 7,000 years. In pre-Saxon times, it is likely that a man named Gilla was the leader of those that lived in the area, as the first record of the area is as ‘Gillingas’ in the early 8th century. The parish church of St. Mary’s dates to Norman times, and the land was mostly arable, with wheat and barley being the main crops. It once boasted Great Ealing School, the “finest private school in England” until it closed in 1908, with famous pupils including WS Gilbert (frequent collaborator of the composer Arthur Sullivan), and Cardinal Newman, the librettist of Sir Edward Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius. Served well by public transport, the District Line first ran into Ealing Broadway in 1875.

Planning Permission

Ealing is a sought after place to live today, with flats being the most common property type to change hands. The average selling price of a flat in Ealing is just over half a million pounds, with terraced houses selling for around three-quarters of a million, and semi-detached properties around £1 million. The overall average price of property in the area makes the borough more expensive than its neighbours by between £70,000 and £200,000.  

Living and moving in London is expensive, so it’s easier and cheaper to look into what you can do to your existing property to maximise the value of your investment. For example, in Ealing, a loft conversion can add as much as 21% of your home’s current value to the sale price, and an extension adding an extra bedroom and bathroom, between 10 and 15%


Building regulations make sure that any new builds or renovations are fit for purpose, and safe for those using them. This includes energy efficiency provision, drainage and damp concerns, and also fire regulations.

Not all home renovation or extension projects require building regulations approval, but it’s a good idea to engage the services of an expert when checking on the requirements in Ealing. If your works include structural alterations, involving load-bearing walls, chimneys, or walls surrounding staircases, they will need to be signed off by a competent authority. Like for like repairs, including most window replacements, will not.
