What you should consider while planning a loft conversion in Pimlico The first step is to find out if your loft is suitable for conversion * The most important is the internal height of the existing loft, from the top to the ceiling joist under the ridge board. The apex – minimum of 2.3m at the highest point * the other most important point is the pitch of the roof – usually a pitch of 30 degrees or more is appropriate. The third thing to consider is the footprint of the existing loft space – as a guideline, the minimum space between the internal walls should measure 5,50m side to side and 7,50m front to put your ideas into design drawings. In most cases, the services of a structural engineer will be required to check that the added load of a new floor will be supported, or have technical drawings made which can then be passed to a builder.

The structural engineer will consider the separation distance between the joists to support the anticipated load weight, and then specify the size and grade of the additional support required. You will also need to submit your plans to building control to ensure you meet Building Regulations. Do I Need a Planning Permission for Loft Conversion Pimlico? Planning permission is not usually required. You will need to consult with an architect whether you need planning permission or not. Velux conversions and dormers can be built under Permitted Development, but they must not sit forward to the main elevation on the roof plane, or they must be higher than the highest part of the existing roof.
