Yes this is the case relating to ‘Permitted Development’ criteria. In October 2008 rules relating to loft conversions and extensions in particular were changed. Properties without Listed Building status have ‘Permitted Development’ rights and previously had limitations measured by volume on what you could build on them without the need to apply for Planning Permission. The new rules now allow a separate volume of permitted development for loft conversions as well as an allowance for extensions with limitations on width, depth and height.
