Planning Approved: Hip to gable loft conversion in Poole

Loft conversion Poole

Design & Development Associates have obtained Householder Planning Approval for a hip to gable loft conversion including raising the ridge height to a detached bungalow in Poole.

Our client was seeking to transform their bungalow by increasing the ridge height and replacing the hipped roof with a gabled roof to allow for two large bedrooms with a first floor bathroom. The existing bungalow already had a bedroom within the roof, so we were able to put forward a planning argument that the larger first floor living accommodation did not materially change the use of the site, and the additional massing would be suitable within the street scene.

The proposal required planning consent and we therefore undertook a detailed measured survey of the property to produce existing floor plans and elevations. Our architectural designers then undertook a design proposal which was submitted to the local authority as a Householder Planning Application. The application was swiftly approved with BCP council (Poole) under delegated powers.

We have since completed the Building Regulations drawings, and the work is currently ongoing on site and due for completion early in 2023.
