Need Planning Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Watford

You shouldn't need planning permission for your proposed conversion but if you're unsure, or think you might need planning permission, an initial discussion with an architect or builder should be able to confirm this. When you contact us we'll tell you how to work out whether you will need to get planning permission, what building regulations to consider, and any other permissions you may need in place before you get started.
