Loft conversion article

If you are looking to increase the accommodation available in your home, loft conversions are a great way to add another bedroom and en-suite.

Putting a loft conversion on a residential property has become one of the more common construction projects. A loft conversion for your house is considered to be a permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:

Lofts conversions are available on all roof types as long as there’s 2.3 metres of head height and a volume of 40 cubic metres within the loft. No extension is to be higher than the highest part of the roof.


  • Increase value of home
  • Additional living space (without extending)
  • Easier to gain planning permission
  • Various choice of styles.
