Loft conversion plans, taken care of
Maybe you need an extra bedroom and maybe you even have space for an en-suite too. Most loft conversion plans don’t require Planning Permission these days but it is still extremely likely that you will need some form of Architectural Drawings. Your Architect will certainly not be offering the cheapest plans and they will certainly not be offering the fastest drawings.
You may need…
Lot Conversion Planning Drawings / Permitted Development Drawings
You can check the UK Government guide HERE to see if your loft conversion plans are likely to need Planning Permission. Even if your loft conversion is considered Permitted Development (ie. doesn’t need Planning Permission), it is still a good idea to get a Lawful Development Certificate. This is basically just written confirmation from your Local Authority that you can build without Planning Permission and definitely aren’t breaking any rules! The Lawful Development Certificate will also come in handy when you eventually come to sell your home. The Lawful Development Certificate Application requires loft drawings of the exact type you would normally use for a loft conversion Planning Application.
Loft Conversion Building Regulations Drawings
Your loft conversion plans will definitely need Building Regulations Approval by either your Local Authority or an Approved Inspector. You can do this one of two ways;
1) A Building Notice
This is just a form that states you are converting your loft and it enables the inspectors to quote your fees and tells them to expect to carry out some site visits soon. There are no loft conversion building regulations drawings produced with this option and you or your builder can submit the Building Notice.
2) Full Plans Application
