Replace Pitched Roof with Flat Roof - PD?

Hi Long story, but I want to use PD to build a 40 cubic metre loft extension to my house.

I was turned down on the grounds that I already have a rear extension which added 7 cubic metres of pitched roof and so the loft extension I applied for would have taken the total increase in roof space from the original building to 47 cubic metres.

Am I allowed, under PD, to replace the rear extension's pitched roof with a flat roof (so removing that 7 cubic metres) ?

If so, my thinking is that the loft extension would now fall within PD.

Any help gratefully accepted!

That theoretically should be fine.

Thanks, Damian

So replacing a pitched roof with a flat roof (no increase in height anywhere) would be within PD, right?

Providing the resulting building still complies with the PD requirements, then yes.
