WHILE plan­ning per­mis­sion can be re­quired for loft con­ver­sions, it’s of­ten not nec­es­sary, pro­vid­ing your home has per­mit­ted devel­op­ment (PD) rights and you stick to the PD rules gov­ern­ing width, height, ma­te­ri­als, etc.

You can’t, for ex­am­ple, have more than 40 cu­bic me­tres of con­verted roof space in a ter­raced house, or 50 cu­bic me­tres in a de­tached or semi-de­tached house – see www. plan­ning­por­tal.gov.uk for a full loft con­ver­sion guide.
