Re: Planning permission needed?

I should add that if your grenier had floorboards, an access by stairs and had been correctly declared beforehand (mine hadnt) then it will already be counted as a habitable area on the fichier fonçière.

Under those circumstances (and how would you know that it hadnt been declared?) then converting it to a bedroom or even a flat would not in my opinion require any declaration unless veluxes or dormer windows are added.

Re: Planning permission needed?

Many thanks for your very informative reply.  I did not change anything except paint the walls so I don't think I am going to say anything.  If there are repercussions in the future, so be it!  I shall go off and enjoy the sun.
