Understanding of Your Loft Conversions Planning Process
- Planning permission is required for the flats and maisonettes as they do not have any permitted development rights.
- There are no permitted rights for conservation areas and listed buildings under Article 4, so they also need planning permission.
- Building regulations and structural engineering designs are required for all the projects; before starting the work, this is submitted as a second application and is a must.
Tips for Loft Conversions
- It is necessary to inform the freeholder if you are not the one, and we can help you provide descriptions and plans needed for them.
- Must is taking all the relevant approvals before starting the actual work, whether your project is permitted. Because sometimes the council can out the article 4 which neglects the legal rights and can cause an issue for you. So, getting the approvals is the best.
- No doubt the planning department is SLOW, allowing 12 weeks for the design, submission and application to be approved by them.
- In most cases, party wall agreements are required; a party agreement is necessary to insert anything structural like steel beams.
- Always plan! There is no doubt that designs, fixtures and fittings are vital. Everything from lightings to sockets, kitchen tiling and bathrooms should be scheduled before the construction work starts. It would be best to have ideas about what you want in mind and should not jump from one idea to another. It can disturb the working pattern, affect the budget you have made, and cost you more than you have planned.
