Will I need planning permission for my loft conversion?

Most of the loft conversion projects we work on at Beattie Construction LTD do not require planning permission.
The construction phase is carried out under permitted development.
However, there are exceptions and some loft conversions exceed permitted development requirements. We’ll make sure you have all the information you need from the start to make an informed decision.

How soon can we start the construction phase?

For permitted development loft conversions, the construction phase can usually begin within 2 – 4 weeks.
This depends on all the structural calculations and plans being ready as well as the required party wall agreements.
For loft conversions requiring planning permission, you can expect the process to take approximately 8 – 12 weeks before the construction phase can begin. You’ll need the party wall agreements, calculations and plans ready before work starts.
There are variations in planning permission waiting periods from borough to borough in London.
Our advisors at Beattie Construction LTD will guide you through the entire process and provide accurate and comprehensive site surveys.
