Flat Roof Dormer Loft Conversions
The most common type of Loft Conversion we design are what is known as "Flat Roof Dormer Loft Conversions". For owners of semi detached or terraced houses this type of Loft Conversion generally represents the best option available due to the large amount of usable space that is created inside the Loft.

Do I need planning permission for a Flat Roof Dormer Loft Conversion?
Whether or not you need to apply for Planning Permission in order to carry out a Flat Roof Dormer Loft Conversion on your house is dependant on a few factors. For most houses the answer is a simple no - you do not need to apply for Planning Permission because the work can be carried out as a Permitted Development (read about those here to know more). However, not every house has Permitted Development Rights and sometimes those rights are not sufficient for the project so there are plenty of instances where Planning Permission does need to be sought. This is especially true for houses which have been extended previously and have therefore used up some of their Permitted Development Rights already.
