Loft Conversions in Doncaster

If you need more space but do not want to extend outward on to your garden why not consider a loft conversion?

Many people choose to have a loft conversion because they want more space but wish to remain in the house or area they are already in.

The space in a loft or attic can be as much as 30% of the total floor area of the home. It usually only contains a cold water storage cistern and chimney stack. In almost all cases it is wasted space that can be turned into habitable space.

If the attic is used for storage there is no need to lose all of this storage space as some attic space can be retained. Many loft conversions do not need planning permission at all. However you should obtain advice as you may need it in your case.

Building controls for lofts and dormers

Under NEW regulations that came into effect from 1st October 2008 a loft conversion or small dormer extension is considered a permitted development, and generally does not require planning permission.

Permission is required if you plan to extend or alter the roof space more than specified limits and conditions.
