The loft is usually unused, or used as a storage space. But if you decide to convert it into a usable space it can add value to the house with a decent investment (min £30k). If you have another bedroom, usually one en-suite, can add at least 20% value to the house.
A loft conversion can be done under permitted development if the added volume doesn't exceed 40 cubic metres for a terraced house and 50 cubic metres for a semidetached and detached houses. For more than this, a full planning permission is required..
Usually, a loft conversion and extension can be done with one planning application, depending on type.
