you may not need planning permission, unless you are in a listed building or what you are planning to remove is visible on the outside. you will need a structual enginer and local building control to approve planed works. both of which will charge for this.. allways best to check with the the local athority first. they dont bite! and are there to help. building control local council.

hope this helps Steve.
