If you live in a listed building, you will also need to obtain listed building consent. Building regulations are in place to make sure that any work done on your loft is structurally sound, that the new room of your loft conversion is fire safe and that sound is reasonably insulated between the loft and the rooms below.
Your loft conversion will be considered a permitted development as long as you conform to standards that have been set out by the government. Any additions or modifications made to your home by previous homeowners will need to conform to your planning permission in order to be approved.
