Quick question…

Buying a house where the owners fitted a few Velux windows in the roof just over 10 years ago.

As the house is in a conservation area I understand they really should have got planning for this.

I know for normal planning breaches if they don’t notice for 4 years then they can’t take action. The question is does this also apply for conservation areas?

Rooflights can still be installed under PD to properties within CA’s. Unless there is an Article 4 Direction that removes those particular PD rights.
