Loft Conversions and Planning Permission

Many homeowners wonder if they will need to get planning permission to convert their loft into liveable space. The answer to that question is… it depends. If the conversion itself will not alter the fundamental profile of the roof you probably do not need planning permission. 

On the other hand, something like a hip-to-gable loft conversion, where the end of the hipped roof is removed and replaced with a vertical gable planning permission will be necessary. In addition, if your home is a listed building or it lies within a conservation area chances are you will need to obtain planning permission.


The Four Main Types of Loft Conversions in Bromley

Loft conversions can take on many different forms, but in most cases, a loft conversions in Bromley fall into one of the following four categories: 

  • Velux – During the velux loft conversion windows or skylights are added to the roof without otherwise changing it in any way. For this reason, planning permission is almost never needed for a velux conversion.
  • Dormer – During a dormer loft conversion box-shaped structures with outward-looking windows are added to a pitched roof producing vertical walls that increase the amount of headroom inside the space. Planning permission is not normally required for this type of loft conversion.
  • Hip-to-gable – By replacing the end of a hip roof with a vertical gable much more headroom is created inside the space. But because a hip-to-gable conversion changes the fundamental shape of the roof it is usually necessary to obtain planning permission.
  • Mansard – This type of loft conversion entails replacing the yard-facing portion of a gable roof with a horizontal roof and a wall that rises at a 72° angle. If you want to optimise the amount of space inside your loft a mansard conversion may be your best choice.
