    Can you have a rooftop greenhouse built?


    Can you have a rooftop greenhouse built? That being that the roof itself is see-through with a greenhouse/conservatory in the loft? Would this be safe? Could such a thing be approved at all?

    "That’s a really cool idea if you’d be ok to do it would have to be really good strong quality glass I’m guessing would have to be something specially made and bespoke and would be very expensive that’s for sure.

    The best way to find out is to ask planning permission as this would give you your answer and you’d have to apply for this anyways before any such project, I guess the worse they could say is no. Hope this helps, Dale @DLKM Services 😉"
