FREE PLANNING PERMISSION CONSULTATION

Are you considering building work in the near future? but are worried that you won’t get lanning permission? Well we’re here to help!

We are happy to offer all of our prospective clients a free planning permission consultation in order to save you unnecessary headaches further down the line.

Loft Planning Permission

Why Extend ?

In many cases you won’t need to get permission at all, but if you want to extend or alter the space in your roof, exceeding specified limits and conditions, you will have to get permission from your local council to carry out the work.​​

Under new regulations that came  into effect from 1 October 2008 a loft conversion for your home is  considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application  for planning permission.

The Specifications

A volume allowance of 40 cubic metres for terraced houses

A volume allowance of 50 cubic metres for detached and semi-detached houses.

No extension beyond the plane of the existing roof slope of the principal elevation that fronts the highway.

No extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof.

Materials to be similar in appearance to the existing house.

No verandas, balconies or raised platforms.

Side-facing windows to be obscure-glazed; any opening to be 1.7m above the floor.

Roof extensions not to be permitted development in designated areas*.

Roof extensions, apart from hip to gable ones, to be set back, as far as practicable, at least 20cm from the eaves.

*Designated areas include  national parks and the Broads, Areas of  Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
