Although a building a loft conversion in the form of a loft dormer is not the most aesthetically pleasing types of loft conversion, it does however offer a larger amount of floor space and headroom in comparison to the other types of conversions.

Projecting vertically from the plane of a sloped roof, a front or rear dormer loft conversion can transform a previously wasted attic room in your home into a fantastic new and usable loft space. The main reason our clients opt for these types of attic renovations and loft conversions are because the new loft room can create a lot of valuable headroom and floor space lit up with natural exterior lighting.
Fortunately with dormer loft conversions and loft construction, they can generally be completed without the need for planning permission. The reason for this is because they fall under something called permitted development (PD). It is important to ensure you speak to the local authorities to confirm that your particular project falls under this rule but also just as important to remember that with any loft conversion on a house, you must obtain Building Regulations Approval even if planning permission is not required.
