Designing a Loft Conversion in Leicester
The first step of the architectural process to give you a loft conversion is to create the design that you love. A good loft conversion design will look at what you want to gain from the converted space, how it will work with the rest of the property and the layout that you have available, how it will sit with the aesthetic of the property and the rest of the area, and so much more.
We take all of your ideas, inspirations and even your challenges into account along with our own decades of expertise to create a perfect design to suit your unique requirements. We offer a varied range of packages to suit your budget and can create multiple designs for you to think about to make sure you’re choosing a design that you love before we move into the next steps.
Planning Permission for a Loft Conversion in Leicester
Planning permission is something that might not always be needed for a loft conversion in Leicestershire. To put that into context, loft conversions that will be a velux or skylight loft conversion, for example, and that will be under around 40m2 will be a perfect candidate for using permitted development rights in many cases. These are the rights homeowners have to make smaller changes to their property without planning permission, but you should still get a certificate to confirm this.
In other cases, say if the conversion is bigger or will have a larger impact on the aesthetic of the external property, planning may well be required. We can take you through the entire planning process for your loft conversion, working with your local authority in Leicestershire to get you the permission that you need for your build to be made legitimate. We create the drawings, submit them to the local authority and make any required amendments at no extra cost all to give you the most seamless and stress-free experience we can.

Building Your Loft Conversion
