A roofline conversion is probably better known as a Velux loft conversion. this type of conversion uses the existing space in your loft. Room(s) can be created within the space you already have using Velux windows to bring in light and ventilation. There is no extending or alterations of the roof space you have and therefore no planning permission is normally required. You will require a set of plans to be drawn up for a roofline conversion along with a Structural Engineer’s report, this is absolutely necessary so that everything is compliant with current building regulations.
