Can I install dormer loft conversion if I live in a designated land?

Can I install dormer loft conversion if I live in a designated land?

Yes, you can. Apart from loft conversions, you can remodel or renovate your home if it’s in a designated land such as conservation area. The focus is on preserving the surrounding environment not necessarily the general style of the home.

However, before installing your dormer loft conversion, any work that alters the roofline requires special consent. Failure to obtain the consent means your loft conversion is illegal and you could be fined or even imprisoned in extreme cases.
