You Need Planning Permission In Kent
A front aspect roof dormer, increasing the roof height beyond original build height, listed buildings or construction in a conservation area would require planning permission. Not all loft conversions will need planning permission, but it will be required if you're extending or changing the roof space and it exceeds certain limits and conditions. If you don't need to alter the roofline of your home and can fit loft conversion works inside the existing roof cover then you should be able to do the work under permitted development (unless you are in a conservation area).
Once you have chosen a builder or loft conversion company like Loft Conversions Kent, make sure you get your quote and, most importantly, what is included, in writing, so you won't get a nasty surprise. To maximise energy efficiency for your loft conversion, the roof space should be made as airtight as possible, and to counter this it is essential to introduce controlled ventilation to prevent the risk of condensation and maintain good air quality.
