This practice note sets out the requirements for a structural engineer’s report to accompany applications for conversions of buildings to new uses and to support demolition of buildings to enable replacement structures.
The requirement for a structural engineer’s report is usually triggered by a proposal which will involve the conversion of a standing structure to a new use
The aim of the structural engineer’s report is to create a record that is accurate, clear and supports decision making in assessing planning proposals. This is to ensure a building can be converted, and in the case of historic structures, without loss of character or historic significance.
