Need Permission Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Warrington
Planning permission is required from your local authority where you extend or alter the roof space and it exceeds specified limits and conditions. Don't forget that you will also need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom). If you're unsure, or think you might need planning permission, an initial discussion with an architect or builder or someone from Loft Conversions Warrington should be able to confirm this.

Warrington, Cheshire Building Regulations
If you plan to make the loft space more accessible or more habitable by, for example, installing a stair to it and improving it by boarding it out and lining the walls/rafters, more extensive work is likely to be required and the building regulations are likely to apply. Building regulations are in place to make sure that any work done on your loft is structurally sound, that the new room of your loft conversion is fire safe and that sound is reasonably insulated between the loft and the rooms below.
Were you aware that loft conversions are usually covered under what's called permitted development? Keep in mind that any additions or modifications made to your home by previous homeowners will need to conform to your planning permission in order to be approved.
