Conservation rooflight area requirements

Please note, our rooflights and roof lantern range come with various options and specifications. It is up to the buyer to check their conservation area requirements against our product specifications before purchasing as a product may be suitable in one conservation area but not another due to council/planning specific requirements. Alternatively, if you send us the specification requirements, we can confirm compliance. As all our rooflights and roof lanterns are made to order it is important this is reviewed before placing your order.

Conservation rooflight specialists

When planning your roof window installation in a conservation area or on a listed building, you will have more considerations than you would on any other building. While you may be granted permission for such windows, you may have stipulations that you need to follow. These may relate to the positioning of the windows, the number of windows, their design, and to roof light sizes. For example, if your sloped roof is highly visible, then you may only be able to have smaller roof windows, or you may be limited to having them on the less visible side of the roof. The size of the windows you have may also be restricted by the construction of the roof and the positioning of the rooms within the home. These are greater considerations if you are working with a listed building where you are limited in the number and type of changes you can make. Here you may find it more practical to go with a greater number of smaller roof lights or custom size roof light windows that fit the spaces you have while remaining unobtrusive. If you are building an extension or designing a new building, then there may be fewer constraints on the sizes of the windows you can add, at least in terms of the structural integrity of the building. If you are adding a single-storey extension to the rear of the property, where it is much less visible, then there is a greater chance that you can have larger roof windows if that is the direction that you wanted to go.

Our experts have a wealth of experience in providing the best lighting and vent solutions to hundreds of homes and businesses around the UK. You can find our overwhelmingly positive reviews on our website, or simply search our name in google to read some of our 5 stars reviews. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we’ll be happy to help.

Choosing between a conservation skylight and a flat roof skylight

In a modern building in a built-up area, custom flat roof skylights are the ideal answer to creating more light and ventilation. Such roof lights open a host of possibilities and enable you to create new living areas, improve those you have, and add light to a room such as bathrooms without compromising on privacy. However, flat roof windows are not always suitable for more traditional buildings, particularly those that are listed or are in conservation areas. In each of these instances, there are stricter planning laws that govern what can be done to an existing house and on the type and style of new buildings. One of the problems with flat roof windows is that they are designed for flat roofs, rather than more traditional sloped or pitched roofs. Another issue is that they are often raised above the roof and therefore are very obvious, creating new features that would not be present on a traditional or listed building. Conservation rooflights are one way to overcome these issues. Such custom roof lights are designed for pitched roofs and are also designed to lay flat against the existing roof. This means that they do not change the visual impact of the building or its style and elegance. Given these benefits, the windows can be fitted to existing roofs or added to extensions without changing the character of the property. However, regardless of whether you are renovating, extending, or building a new property, such changes should be cleared with the local planning authority and any other relevant parties first.

What is a conservation rooflight?

Conservation rooflights are intended to replicate an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. They’re made with easy-installation in mind, so as not to disturb or damage the surrounding roof of an older building. 

If you are concerned about the current condition of your roof, particularly for one on an older building, then a conservation rooflight is the most appropriate installation for you!

Can you put a skylight in a conservation area?

If you plan to install a rooflight on a building with protected qualities, such as a heritage site or listed building, then you will need to check that there is not currently an Article 4 direction in place for the building.

An Article 4 direction restricts your permitted rights regarding making alterations to specific types of older buildings, and this type of restriction may specifically disallow you from installing new features on the building that were not part of the original structure or design.

You can, however, seek permission from your local authority to allow the installation of a new conservation skylight, even if there is an Article 4 direction in place, but it is up to the local governing body to decide whether a new installation will be permitted or not.

For more information on planning permission for your new skylight, explore our Building Regulations and Planning Permission for Rooflights: Complete Guide.

Great service from the team. Easy to order, good buying guidance and clear install instructions for my builder. Rooflights look absolutely great! The team at TGS couldn't have been more helpful in organising a smaller delivery vehicle to help with restricted access. Highly recommend TGS.

The glass balustrade gives us an amazing view onto the lake outside. So happy we ended up going for the frameless glass balcony from Toughened Glass Systems instead of one with posts

My job is to design the interiors for a lot of houses and a lot of times the hardest part was when the client wanted some really inexpensive rooflights that should look like some contemporary ones as well. That until I found Toughened Glass Systems and started working with them more and more. They have a lot of this kind of stuff at a very decent price, a price for anyone I can say. If you’re looking for cheap skylights for flat roofs or any types of roof lights, they probably have something for you.
