The majority of properties have a certain area of lawful development, which allows a loft conversion to be constructed without the need for planning permission. As a general rule, this enables us to construct a side and/or rear dormer or gable conversion without the worry of whether planning permission would be granted.

All habitable room conversions will require Building Regulations Approval. A set of detailed plans will be sent to the Local Authority Building Control. On approval of the plans and commencement of the conversion, a Building Control Surveyor will visit the site on various occasions to ensure that the conversion is carried out in accordance with the approved plans.

On completion of the loft conversion, the Building Surveyor will make a final inspection. A Completion of Works certificate will then be issued by the Local Authority to complete the set of documents required.
