Planning permission is not normally required for a loft conversion unless you are planning on extending out the existing loft space.

Maximising Loft Spacex

When planning a loft conversion, you should factor in using all the available space. Those unusually shaped eaves can make fantastic storage. Installing built-in furniture such as wardrobes or cupboards designed to fit the unique shape of your loft space will also allow you to maximise the space available within the loft conversion.
