Can I do hip to gable conversion even though my property is on designated land?

Can I do hip to gable conversion even though my property is on 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 starting your project, know that any work that alters the roofline requires special consent. Failure to get the consent means your loft conversion is illegal and you could be fined or imprisoned in extreme cases.
