You Need Planning Permission In Harlow
If you plan on extending beyond the limits and conditions of your property or if it is listed or located in a conservation area, then you will need to apply for planning permission. Loft Conversions Harlow can tell you that not all loft conversions need planning permission. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
Trusses are typically used with thinner timbers and while the prefabrication method results in a faster installation time, they often require additional support during a loft conversion. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom for the conversion then the roof will need to be raised or the floor below lowered.
