If you are planning a loft conversion in wood green, you must first check whether you require full permission from the local authority. You can apply for permitted development if you are not in a conservation area or on designated land. There are strict rules that must be followed, such as not exceeding 40 cubic metres of additional roof space for terraced houses and 50 cubic meters for detached houses. Similarly, your loft extension must not protrude from the slope of the existing roof, and it cannot be higher than the highest part of the existing roof. If you are planning to put up a balcony, it is not possible under permitted development.
If you want to use your loft for storage, you can look for a space on the rooftops that's currently empty. Then you can choose a place where you'll work, or you can build an additional room. If you plan to install windows, make sure they are opaque and cannot be opened above eye level. The height of the windows must be 1.7 metres above the floor.
If you intend to turn your loft into a storage space, you'll need to apply for building regulations. In addition to the necessary planning permission, you will have to build walls that support the new roof. The walls must meet all building regulations and fire safety requirements. And you'll also need to install windows and doors. If you're converting your loft to an office, you should check whether you need permission first. If you're in a conservation area, you'll need to get approval before you can convert the space.
