Planning Permission
Planning permission may be required for your loft conversion. We are able to deal with the planning application and have a 100% success rate in achieving planning permission with our designs.
The process normally takes 8 weeks from when the plans are submitted to the local authority.

Building Regulations
All loft conversions will require a building regulations approval. We are able to deal with this application on your behalf. We have a 100% success rate in achieving a full building regulations approvals.

The building regulations covers many items on a loft conversion, such as:
Structure
Fire Safety
Insulation
Site Safety

Party Wall Act
We are able to deal with the Party Wall Act where a loft conversion uses the Party Wall during construction. In most loft conversions a Party Wall Act agreement will be required between you and your neighbours.

The Party Wall Act covers your neighbours for any damage that occurs when your loft conversion is built. The contractor building the loft conversion will have to put right any any damage to your neighbours property. We send your neighbours the Party Wall Act agreements paperwork and are able to bring in our own Surveyor to deal with any issues that arise.

Types of loft conversion:

We provide a full architectural design service for the following loft conversion types: 

Full Rear Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
A dormer loft conversion is an extension to the existing roof that projects vertically from a sloping roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the property. Internally, a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling. It is the most common type of loft conversion, as the flat roof dormers often add the maximum amount of additional space.

Pitched Roof Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
Pitched Roof Dormer conversions lend themselves to large footprint or high pitched roofs. They are sometimes a requirement as apposed to full rear dormers if you live in a conservation area. A pitched roof dormer makes an attractive feature and depending on your property you could add various pitched roof dormers. Any dormers on the front of a property would require planning permission, but they can be added at the rear under permitted development in most cases.

Velux Conversion Loft Conversion Plans
Velux Loft Conversions are also known as rooflight loft conversions. Velux is the leading manufacturer of roof windows, hence the name.
With this type of project, the roof line is unaltered because the Velux windows are installed fitting flush to the existing roof line. A Velux type loft conversion works very well for lofts where there is a good amount of headroom or if there are constraints on planning,

L-shaped Dormer Loft Conversion Plans
The L-shaped dormer loft conversion is also very popular and is often considered the best way to extend a mid-terrace period property to maximise space. By opting for an L-shaped conversion you can normally comfortably add 2 bedrooms and a Bathroom / En-Suite.

Hip To Gable Loft Conversion Plans
Hip To Gable loft conversions add a considerable amount of headroom to a loft, as well as functional floor space. This type of conversion requires the roof to be stripped back to the top of the hip ends, the flank wall built into a gable, and extending the ridge to meet the gable. This type of conversion requires reconstruction of some of the front roof.

Mansard Roof Loft Conversion Plans
A mansard loft conversion, named after the 17th-century French Architect Francois Mansard, is situated to the rear of the property. This type of conversion has a flat roof with the back wall sloping inwards at an angle of 72 degrees. Windows are usually housed within small dormers. Mansard loft conversions normally require planning permissions due to large changes to the roof shape and structure.

  1. Excellent set of plans and service

    We used Loft Conversion Plans UK to design our loft conversion on our bungalow. The process from making initial contact to the designs going in to the planning department took around 1 week.

    The councils planning application and building regulations applications took around 2 months before we could start building. Loft Conversion Plans UK dealt with all the council paperwork and made the experience hassle free. The plans passed first time without any problems and we were then able to get quotes from local loft conversion companies / joiners. Loft Conversion Plans UK were also able to provide us with 2 comparable quotes to work from so we knew we were being correctly dealt with in regards for quotes for the work.

    Overall, I was happy with the service provided and we are now ready to start the next stage of the process and get the builders in. Thankyou.

  2. 5 star service

    5 Star service from Loft Conversion plans UK.

    We contacted them on Monday and the plans were finished and in at the council on Friday. The team were very helpful and gave us lots of advice on the best position to place stairs, roof windows and dormers.

    The plans are excellent and easy for our joiner to work from.

  3. Great plans

    We need a set of plans for our loft conversion and we needed them quickly after we were let down by an architect. We contacted Loft Conversion Plans UK and they were able to sort the plans out in a matter of days!

    We were able to get the plans through the building regulations and our joiner was able to start straight away. They even provided us with the party wall forms and sent them to our neighbours to speed the process up.

    The plans were detailed and we were able to get an accurate price from them. Couldn’t ask for more.

  4. Good service at a good price

    A good service. We needed a low cost set of plans and we’re surprised when we found this company could do the work for a great low price.

    The plans are detailed and passed both council applications first time. I’d highly recommend them.

  5. Thanks very much. A good service.

    Great service, glad we used you. The plans were drawn up quicky and submitted to the local authority and approved by building control within a week!

    We were then given 3 local loft conversion joiners who gave me quotes for the work. It was all really simple. The quotes came back and two of them were a little high but with a bit of haggling we selected the company who we currently have booked in to build the loft conversion in April 2020.
