Roof Lanterns make a great feature as well as flooding rooms with tons of natural daylight.

According to the Planning Portal on June 23rd 2015, you should not need to apply for planning permission to add Roof Lanterns or Skylights in to your Flat Roof. This is because the current permitted development rules allow for roof alterations. But you should always check with your local council. If you are creating an orangery extension or Conservatory it will provide you with an extra room in your house, but does mean you will be giving up some garden space.

If your extension is under a certain size, you will again not need planning permission, but instead the work can be carried out under ‘permitted development’. But again please check with your local council.
