We would like to replace a flat roof with a tiled pitched roof with a roof window. will we need planning permission?
We would also like to put a pitched roof over a front bay window. Again would we require planning permission?

Yes you will almost certainly require PP & BC will want to get involved as well , you can also check this by calling your local BC (Buildings Control Regulations) You will need to consider the additional weight of the pitch roof & tiles when building/buying the roof trusses & you will need to ensure the insulation of the new room complies with current standards.

You may only need building regs. But most local authorities will insist on planning permission if facing a public high way. It will be best to get building regs at the very least as if you dont it will come up in searches if you ever sell the property Edward

It depends on the local authority and roof design. This is at the front of the house so if nobody else in the street has done the same it maybe an issue. You can get a meeting with the local authority to check. However, you will need a building certificate to sell later. The rear roof is less of an issue because it does not effect the look of the road. Find out your local authority U-value and install insulation to comply and you are then
complying with all the rules. I am starting one tomorrow so I have just been through this.

it may be that you just let building control know, this can be possible in certain cases

Planning is not always necessary

Although in certain case planning may not be necessary we would advise you do notify local authorities and bc especially if facing outwards to roads etc
