The exquisite Esplanade and cliff-top greensward, with its colorful Victorian-style beach bungalows, are reached along tree-lined pathways. The sandy beach is peaceful and private.

Many Victorian-style beach cottages still line the seafront, harkening back to the days when Frinton-on-Sea was a favorite resort for the nobility and even Royalty.

Can I have Loft Conversion in a Conservation Area?

Conservation area properties and locations can have highly unique character traits and histories. Of course, this is all part of the appeal of living in such a location, but it may make ordinary tasks more complex, such as extending the house with a loft conversion.

Although it may be conceivable to convert your loft if you live in a conservation area, there will almost certainly be additional, rigorous laws in place, so you'll have a lot to think about if you want to attempt.

What are the Required Consents for having a Loft Conversion in Frinton-on-Sea?

Article 4 Directions are special regulations that pertain to your conservation area and are generally in place to guarantee that plans for the property stay compatible with other properties in the region, especially maintaining consistency with an original design. As a result, the planning office will carefully examine the proposal in light of:

·         Noise, parking, and roofline all have an impact.

·         The preservation of nature

·         Privacy / Viewing

·         Overshadowing / light loss

·         Parking

In conservation zones specifically, influence on the roofline is a crucial problem and planners will always examine to see whether the planned loft conversion design would put the exterior view of the roof out of line or out of keeping with other houses in the area.

To safeguard areas from improper development, planning approval, or the consent of the local planning authority to carry out alterations to the fabric of the building, is in place. This is especially crucial in conservation zones, where any changes must be 'in keeping' with the overall look of the place. As a result, any renovations, upgrades, or even minor repairs to homes in conservation zones will require planning clearance. It is also in place to safeguard neighboring premises from concerns such as invasion of privacy or light theft.

If the property is in a conservation area, the planning office may grant authorization subject to specified planning requirements. Any restrictions imposed by planners must be followed, as alterations in a conservation area, including alterations to listed buildings, are a criminal offense that can result in significant fines, prosecution (including imprisonment), and the costly requirement to return the property to its original (pre-alteration) state.

How much will a Loft Conversion add to my Frinton-on-Sea house’s value?

It has been stated that the maximum value add-on of 20-25% would most likely be obtained only if you establish 'the perfect self-contained sleeping area' in your attic, i.e. a bedroom with an ensuite. And this will only work in areas with a scarcity of larger, family houses. If you currently reside in an area where huge, multi-bedroom homes are plentiful, a loft conversion is unlikely to increase the value of your property.

Be mindful of the unavoidable influence of a conversion on the quantity of storage available in the property.

You'll have to think about how you can incorporate more storage space into your house to compensate for the storage space you're losing. If you want to stay in your house for an extended period of time, a loft conversion may not be viable.

Having said that, loft conversions are seeing a revival, not least because homeowners are increasingly employing them as home offices. A home office, formerly considered a niche option, is now one of the most in-demand property amenities, with demand in London alone increasing from 8% to 27% by 2020. Although turning your loft into a home office will not add as much value as an ensuite bedroom - 10% vs. 20% - it will also be at the lower end of the normal loft conversion cost, making it well worth the investment.
