Simple to carry out loft conversions are relatively hassle-free to complete – they can usually be done in a week or two. Adding a loft conversion that includes a bathroom and a double bedroom would typically add around 20% to the value of a three-bed, one-bathroom property. Converting your loft from a dank storage area to a desirable living space is one the quickest and cheapest ways to add extra room and value to your home.
You Need Planning Permission In Bath
A front aspect roof dormer, increasing the roof height beyond original build height, listed buildings or construction in a conservation area would require planning permission. Unless you live in a protected area, you probably won't need planning permission for your loft conversion if the total area of the additional space doesn't exceed 50 cubic metres and doesn't extend higher than the current highest point of the roof. In most cases, loft conversions tend to be considered permitted development, but your design will need to adhere to a number of specified parameters.
