Hello, could I ask advice please...I am in the process of building my home and typically have noticed a few areas that I should have put in some velux windows but never thought of it at design stage. I mentioned it to my builder and he seems to have no problem - he said wait until house is at roof level and then you will have a better idea if you want extra veluxes in the attic (of house and garage) or not. These veluxes would be all north west facing and to the front of the house and garage. I am worrying now that perhaps I would need planning permisison for this. My builder seems to think not, he mentioned something along the lines of 'veluxes are considered skylights and thus, don't need planning permission'. Before I get my hopes up (of being able to put in more veluxes for more light in attics), I wonder would anyone know do I need planning for this or not. Also, one other quick question: would you recommend putting water tank in attic of garage rather than house as a friend of mine who has just built a house said that was one fault she found with her newbuild - water tank is situated in attic over master bedroom and when anyone flushes toilet, she can hear the water gurgling from tank above her room! Thanks for any advice you may have.
