If you are thinking of having a loft conversion done to get that extra living space or bedroom to add value to your house, then we have some advice to give you. 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 loft conversion regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 a loft conversion for your home 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 for terraced houses * A volume allowance of 50 cubic metres 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 loft conversions, to be set back, as far as practicable, at least 20cm from the eaves.Building regulations still apply for loft conversion. The approval is required to convert a loft or attic into a live-able space.Sandhill Building Solutions Ltd are professional builders in London who will get your loft conversion sorted in no time.

I had my loft done by these guys couple of months ago. I can say only good about the quality and professional work they did. Fast and efficient work. I'm thinking about renovating my kitchen and ground floor bathroom now and they will be the first ones to quote.
