Having loft conversions to expand your house in Aveley is considered an allowed development, which means they do not require planning permission as long as explicit conditions are met. So, if you're looking for an up-front conversion with roof windows, you shouldn't be concerned but you have to double-check. However, if your ideas surpass specific restrictions and criteria, such as outspreading or changing the roof space beyond its present borders, you will need to obtain planning approval.
Whether your loft conversion is allowed development or not, you will need to observe stern building standards to guarantee that the work is done safely.
It's usually a good idea to consult an architect or builder to establish whether or not you require planning approval for converting your loft in Aveley. However, a loft conversion is within the allowed development and does not require planning approval if the following requirements are met:
For terraced properties, the additional loft area will be no larger than 40 cubic metres, and for detached and semi-detached buildings, it will be no larger than 50 cubic metres. Please keep in mind that existing loft additions must be factored into the volume allowed.
The loft conversion does not extend beyond the plane of the house's current roof slope at the front (the principal elevation).
The loft conversion does not rise over the highest point of the existing roof.
There are no verandas, balconies, or elevated platforms in the loft conversion.
The loft conversion is built using materials that complement the rest of the property.
Any windows on the side must be obscure-glazed (to stop people from seeing in and out).
Any side-facing windows must be at least 1.7m high.
Your house is not in a recognized area, such as a national park, an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), a conservation area, or a World Heritage Site.
With the exception of hip-to-gable expansions, roof extensions must be placed back at least 20cm from the original eaves.
A roof addition must not outcrop the original house's wall outside.
Dormer loft conversions are created by adding a box-shaped structure to a pitched roof, creating walls that sit at a 90-degree angle to the floor. This helps to rise not just your headspace but also your floor area.
A dormer loft conversion is a vertical extension of your current roof pitch. In most circumstances, a dormer loft conversion does not require planning clearance. Because the building will normally not necessitate any drastic alterations to the exterior of your property, the work is usually classified as approved development. You must, however, ensure that the expansion is placed back at least 20cm from the original eaves. The height should also not surpass the original roof's height. Planning clearance will be necessary if this is not the case.
A hip to gable loft conversion involves removing the side roof from the side wall. This increases internal head height.
During the early phases of this modification, the builder must remove the hipped portion of the roof. As a result, the floor steels may be put and the gable can be built. Some teams prefer to construct the gable end up over the existing hip to make the property's side weather tight. Then take the hip out of the new loft. This, however, is dependent on the time of year the loft is erected. The gable also allows the floor area within the loft to be expanded to the complete footprint area.
A hip-to-gable extension straightens your roof's slanted side to produce a vertical wall. Again, because no drastic alterations to the roof structure are required, this type of work is normally deemed approved development. However, if your work will exceed any of the loft conversion authorized development regulations, planning approval will be required.
A mansard loft conversion includes elevating one side of your roof's pitch until it is nearly vertical and the top is flat. A mansard loft conversion will almost always require planning clearance. This is due to the fact that it significantly alters the contour of the roof structure.
