If you happen to live in a conservation area, or if your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Unless your roof has a breathable felt you will need to leave a void above the installed insulation and ensure that you have effective roof ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation in your home.
