Can I install Velux windows if I live in a designated land?

If you live in a conservation or heritage area or you live in a flat, planning permission may be required. 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 imprisoned in extreme cases.

However, that should not discourage you. The focus is mostly on preserving the surrounding environment not necessarily the general style of the home. We can provide you with free advice, help you through the planning process and with our architectural team, we can ensure that all work meets building regulations.
