Around 90% of loft conversions constructed do not require formal planning permission; they are constructed under the property’s permitted development rights.
Permitted development rights mean that you are allowed to develop the existing roof space within the individual constraints of permitted development, without any prior consultation with the local authority planning department.
By choosing a company like Rooftop Rooms Ltd with our own in-house architectural technicians, you can rest assured that we have the expertise to ensure that the construction meets all of the requirements of permitted development.
If we have any concerns on any aspect of the construction then we will submit an application to the local authority, known as a ‘Lawful Development Application’ to confirm that the proposal meets the legal requirements of permitted development.
Our in house architectural technicians have expertise, developed over years of working in the loft industry, to prepare and submit the required planning application. You would be speaking directly with our in house design and engineering team, ensuring complete continuity throughout the process.
We can provide you with the expert guidance to ensure that any applications, if required, are submitted and our team will liaise with the local planners to achieve a successful outcome.
