If you're looking for extra space in your home, you might very well be contemplating a loft conversion. It saves a whole lot of time and money and you don't have to move either. But, what about getting permission? For getting a loft conversion in West Wickham and England, there is a recent law brought into effect in 2008 which suggests you no longer need planning permission*. This act, referred to as the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (No. 2) (England) Order 2008 (quite the mouthful that), was intended to change the planning laws to take pressure off local planning departments.
It was a good law, and for many home owners it made things a lot easier to go ahead and get loft conversions. To sum it up, the law allows a domestic extension project to go ahead under "permitted development" rather than making them apply for planning permission. Loft conversions in West Wickham have now never been easier. All you need to do is make your plan up ahead of time, ask about town for good builders and then book your project.
Because you don't need planning permission, you can now start your project any time that is convenient for you. So, you might want to book your West Wickham loft conversion as early as you can, to avoid having to wait because the builders are busy.
