Velux Loft Conversion or Skylight Loft Conversion
A Velux loft conversion or skylight loft conversion is one of the simplest and most cost effective loft conversions to build as the roof of the property is not altered in any way and only windows are added. This generally means that planning permission is not required. If you are looking to maximise your space, then this type of loft conversion may not be suitable for you as it is more restrictive than other types.
Do I need Planning Permission for Velux Loft Conversions Sawbridgeworth?
There are, however, limitations of permitted development, and if we are unsure if your proposed conversion passes the permitted development tests, we recommend obtaining a Lawful Development Certificate from your local authority. The LDC is not the same as planning permission, but does provide you with written proof that your loft conversion is lawful should questions be raised at a later date when you come to sell your house.
There are also regulations about how much space can be added inside the house – 40 cubic meters for terrace properties and 50 cubic meters for a semi or detached house.
How about Building Regulations?
Building Regulations Approval is required on any loft conversion regardless if planning permission is required. Building Regulations ensure that the structure is safe and will cover, amongst other things, structural strength, stability, sound insulation, safety and suitable emergency exits.
