Fields Crescent, Waterlooville, Hampshire.
Planning Application submitted and approved by Havant Borough Council for a loft conversion that will add a new master bedroom and en-suite.
En-Plan after discussion with the owners drafted a Certificate of Lawfulness Application for a new full height dormer and loft conversion to add a new master bedroom and en-suite that would allow this growing family the room it needs. The Certificate of Lawfulness application was subsequently submitted to Havant Borough Council and received planing approval as the volume created by the former fell within the permitted development rights of householder to extend their property by. In this instance the volume allowed is 40 cubic meters with the full height dormer coming in well below this figure.
En-Plan have subsequently formulated a Building Regulations Full Plans Application to gain approval for the technical detail for the build and have now submitted and received approval for the specification shown. the Construction phase is nearing completion and we look forward to showcasing the completed project in the future.
