    Hi all,

    Me again with my planning questions!

    I have a single storey flat roof extension at the back of the house, and as I am getting some work done currently(will negotiate a good price), I'm planning to convert this into a pitch roof-due to the fact that the felt is nearly 30years old and of course the insulation is poor.

    My question is where do I stand in terms of planning/building regs? Is this a job that can be carried out under PD or will I require plans? Also if anyone has any info regarding building regs requirements for new pitched roofs that would be appreciated

    Thanks in advanced!

    Whether or not you need planning permission depends on how big the extension is, how high the pitched roof will end up, and possibly how close to the boundary it is, so not possible to tell from your brief description.
    It would need a Building Regs application, but you do not necessarily have to get plans drawn for this, as long as you/your builder know what you are doing.
