Do you need planning consent for a loft conversion ?
The good news is that planning permission is not normally required for loft conversions. 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 1 October 2008 a loft conversion for your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:
A volume allowance of 40 cubic metres additional roof space for terraced houses*;
A volume allowance of 50 cubic metres additional roof space for detached and semi-detached houses*;
No extension beyond the plane of the existing roof space 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.
A permitted development form can be completed and granted in as little as 10 days, Most conversions and rear extensions will pass under permitted development laws.
