What Houzz contributors are saying:
Can I convert the loft?“Loft extensions that solely use the space within the existing roof do not normally require a planning application,” Geoff says. “This is great when creating a rooflight extension that could be classed as a bedroom, as long as Building Regulations approval has been obtained.” It’s also possible to extend your loft space under Permitted Development if you keep within certain limitations. “You can build a loft conversion to a volume of up to 40 cubic metres for terraced houses and 50 cubic metres for semi-detached or detached houses,” Andrew says. “However, some things may require Planning Permission, such as street-facing conversions, side windows, and work that might impact any protected wildlife species, such as bats,” he adds.Find a loft conversion specialist today on Houzz.
