It's definitely important to know whether you'll need planning permission before you begin - especially as it can take a long time to get approval - and you'll also need to make sure that your conversion meets building regulations.
Your building control officer will want to check all the different elements of your loft conversion so be prepared for this. You're going to need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom).
Planning Permission For Your Bradford Loft Conversion
If you plan on expanding beyond the conditions of pd, or your property is listed or located in a conversation area, then you will need to apply for planning permission. If you're unsure, or think you might need planning permission, an initial discussion with Loft Conversions Bradford should be able to confirm this.
Any house with an attic or loft space shouldn't relegate that potential room to just a storage space. In most Bradford homes, the existing timber joists that form the floor of the loft space (i.e. the ceiling of the rooms below) will not have been designed to support a significant weight.
