Domestic loft conversions are usually considered permitted development and do not require planning permission. Taking into consideration previous roof space additions the proposed works can be assessed against the following criteria for permitted development compliance:
With all permitted development projects it is advisable to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate (LDC) from the local planning authority. If you decide to sell your property an LDC may help answer any queries raised by potential buyers or their legal representatives. As well as obtaining an LDC it is important to obtain building regulations approval and serve any relevant party wall notices.
