Roof Terrace Planning Permission


I want to put in an application for a roof terrace, what are my chances of getting approval

We are finding that more and more of our customers are enquiring about roof conversions, not only for additional internal floor space but to use as a terrace! Because of this demand, there is more precedence to the councils can relate to for granting permission for a roof terrace in and around London in your area.

Once a planning application is submitted for a roof terrace, the council will look favourably on the application if it has;

  • Limited overlooking to neighbours

Building a high wall around the perimeter of the terrace or a lower wall offset away from the edge.

  • Overshadowing of neighbours

Use of materials that allow light to passed thought to neighbouring properties such as frost glass or wooden trellises.

  • Local and surrounding precedence of similar work.

If a neighbouring property or a nearby property has had roof Terrence application approved, this would look very favourable to your application, be sure to mention on your application!
