Can I do a loft conversion in a conservation area?

Properties on conservation areas have special character histories and features. It adds to the charm of the area but makes it difficult to do things like a loft conversion. You have to get planning permission from the Brighton planning authority, which could be subject to specific planning conditions.

Once approval is granted, you have to check the types of loft conversion possible in your conservation area. Popular options include Mansard and Velux loft conversion designs.
