Loft Planning Permission by Loft Conversions Uk
It's important to know whether you are going to need planning permission before you start - especially as it can take a long time to get approval - and you'll also need to make sure that your conversion meets building regulations. To check whether you need to get planning permission before starting your loft conversion, you'll need an architect or builder.
Cases Without Planning Permission In UK, United Kingdom
In all circumstances you are advised to contact your local planning authority for guidance on local policy before starting any work.
If you plan to make the loft space in your home more accessible or more habitable by installing a staircase and improving it by boarding it out and lining the walls / rafters etc, more extensive work is likely to be required and the building regulations are likely to apply. Building regulations were put in place to make sure that any work done is structurally sound, that the new room is fire safe and that sound is reasonably insulated between the loft and the rooms below.
Need Planning Permission In UK
If conditions were attached to the original permission for your property then you may need planning permission for your loft. Loft Conversions Uk will need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom).
If you've got any questions about the rules in place or need to clarify anything, it's always better to be safe than sorry and to contact your local planning authority.
