    Building a house extension can be a stressful experience. We would like to make the process easier with a free workshop for residents.

    The “Getting the Builders In” workshop aims to steer you around the pitfalls of extending your home. Council planning and building control experts will be on hand to explain how building designs can be made to comply with planning and building regulations. They will also be offering tips on finding a good builder and will advise on how to make sure the building work delivers what you want from your extension. The workshop is free to residents of Swindon Borough. If you would like to book a place or would like a “Getting the Builders In” information pack, email:
