In most cases, the loft conversion can be carried out without the need for planning permission. However, if your home is in a conservation area or has a low roof space, you may have to apply for permission from the local authority. A professional should be able to advise you on the appropriate steps for obtaining planning permission. To determine whether your conversion is permissible, take a look at similar properties on the street and contact your local building control department.
