What you should consider while planning a loft conversion in Ealing?
The first step is if your loft is suitable for conversion
The new loft’s inner height from the top of the ceiling joist to the apex below the ridge board is the most significant – at the highest point, at a total of 2.3 m. The other most important aspect is the roof pitch-normally ideal is a pitch of 30 degrees or greater. The third element to note is the present loft space size-the minimum space between the inside walls would be 5.50 m from side to side and 7.50 m from front to back.
Do I need permission to plan Loft Conversion Ealing?
Traditionally, planning consent isn’t required. However, if you extend or change the roof space and exceed the specified limits and conditions, or if you live in a listed building or protected area, permission is required. You’d need to find an architect to see whether planning permission is required or not. Velux modifications and dormers that be built under Permitted Construction, but they must not sit in front of the roofline at the main elevation, nor must they be higher than the highest part of the current roof.
Do I need the approval of the Building regulations?
Much like major home improvements, all loft modifications need Building Regulations approval and sign-off to ensure the safety measures are in place. The rules that apply depend on what kind of conversion you have. By design, construction laws include the following elements: fire protection, sound insulation, floor and beams, stairs, walls, etc.
