You don't need to speak to the SGPC. It depends where you live it is in Southall or near that area I don't think another Gurdwara is needed. But the best thing to do would be to speak to a sikh organisation such as Basics of Sikhi and Sikh 2 Inspire.

Sorry I'm not sure about the UK. Here in Canada starting a Gurdwara (even in your house) involves: forming a religious society with a committee (president, VP, secretary at minimum) and registering it with the province. You form a constitution, acquire society act and religious corporations act. Then you apply for a charity from the federal gov't.I hope that helps give at least an idea of what the process may look like.
