If your loft conversion involves making changes to the structure of your property, you will almost certainly require planning permission.

Our company is dedicated to minimizing the disruption as much as possible. We do this by planning everything out carefully beforehand and working with you to make sure that you know exactly what will happen and when, so there are no surprises.


The first thing you need to do is check with your local South Ockendon council to see if there are any restrictions on converting your loft. If you're lucky, you might be able to convert your loft without needing any special permission from the city or county. But if you live in an urban area or a place where there are a lot of older houses with lofts, you might need to get approval from the city or county before beginning work on your conversion. You can apply for this approval by contacting your local building department and asking them if they have any rules about converting lofts. If local rules don't apply, then you probably don't need any special permissions at all! We recommend reaching out to our architect and engineer who specializes in loft conversions before starting work on a project like this one.
