Planning Permission and Loft Conversions

Local authority planning permission may be required depending on the type of work undertaken. Planning offices vary from area to area so there is no written rule of what they will and will not find acceptable. Superficially you can look to see if any similar buildings in your area have had similar work as an indication of the likelihood of receiving permission. See the governments planning portal web site for more information on planning permission for loft conversions. Online planning applications can now be made.
