Will I need planning permission for my loft conversion?
The majority of loft conversion projects we work on do not require planning permission. The construction phase is carried out under permitted development.
There are exceptions however, including loft conversions that exceed permitted development requirements and for properties located in special conservation areas. We’ll make sure you have all the relevant information you need from the very beginning.
How long until the construction phase can begin?
For permitted development loft conversions, the construction phase can usually begin within 2 - 4 weeks. This will need all structural calculations and plans to be ready as well as the required party wall agreements.
For loft conversions requiring planning permission, you can expect the process to take approximately 8 – 12 weeks before the construction phase can begin. You’ll need the aforementioned party wall agreements, calculations and plans to be ready before work commences. There are some variations in planning permission and waiting periods depending on the area you may live in . Our advisors here at Clifford James Building Contractors Ltd, will guide you through the entire process and provide accurate and comprehensive site surveys.
