Planning permission is not normally required. However, permission is required where you extend or alter the roof space and it exceeds specified limits and conditions.
Under new regulations that came into effect from October 2008 a loft conversion for your home is considered permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:
We will run through the planning permission regulations for loft extensions with you.
We can handle Building Control for you, the cost is usually about £400.
We can arrange for a local plumber to reposition any plumbing to maximise usable space in the loft. Chimney stacks usually have to remain in position.
How much will a loft conversion cost?
The cost of a loft conversion compares favourably with other forms of home extension. A basic loft conversion can cost from £10,000 to around £20,000 according to the size and design of the loft conversion project.
A bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dormer window could raise the cost of the loft conversion to around £30,000.
The cost of a loft conversion will also depend on the location of the conversion company you decide to use. As local builders we have less travel overheads and will pass these savings on.
Building regulations approval is required to convert a loft or attic into a liveable space.
You will need to gain building regulation approval for your conversion, probably need the services of an architect and certainly have to comply with fire regulations at every point in the construction of your loft conversion.
We can arrange all of this for
you and keep you informed at every stage.
As we have said above you may not require
planning permission, provided the loft conversion is the first extension and does not exceed 40 cubic meters on a terraced property and 50 cubic meters on others and your house is not in a
Conservation Area or at the junction of two public highways.
If you plan to make your loft into any kind of living accommodation you must first get building regulation approval.
