You Need Planning Permission In Harrow
Planning permission typically covers how the work will look externally and how it affects the property and any neighbouring dwellings. 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. Because most loft conversions are generally allowed under permitted development rights, there's no need to go through the lengthy process of obtaining planning permission.
If you are carrying out loft conversion works and are managing the project yourself, you should arrange conversion insurance to cover the new works and the existing structure. Before starting any loft conversion project Loft Conversions Harrow advise that you speak to your local planning department to prevent any surprises.
