How do I convert my loft if I live in a designated land?

Strictly speaking, it is not true that you can’t remodel or renovate your home if it’s in designated land such as a conservation area. The focus is more on preserving the surrounding environment and general style of the home.

In relation to dormer loft conversion, this means that any work which alters the roofline requires special consent. Failure to obtain the consent means your loft conversion is illegal and you could be fined or imprisoned in extreme cases.
