You Need Planning Permission In Southend
You will 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) but Loft Conversions Southend can advise you on this. Deciding to convert your loft requires careful consideration of your roof structure, heating and insulation but our team at Loft Conversions Southend are here to help.. If you don't need to alter the roofline of your home and can fit loft conversion works inside the existing roof cover then you should be able to do the work under permitted development (unless you are in a conservation area).
Trusses are typically used with thinner timbers and while the prefabrication method results in a faster installation time, they often require additional support during a loft conversion. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom for the conversion then the roof will need to be raised or the floor below lowered.
