I write in reply to your question.  I am assuming you are to install a velux window within the existing slope of the bungalow roof to provide daylight to storage space and/or existing loft room.  Based upon this information I can confirm that you will NOT be required to seek Planning permission, as NO major alterations are planned to the existing dwelling shell.
I would like to bring to your attention that you will be required to submit an application to the local Building Control department.  The installation of the velux results in structural alterations to the existing roof structure resulting in these works coming under their control as a 'material alteration'.
It may involve other measures depending upon what is deemed applicable.

IF you would like further information, I would be happy to provide guidance which will help in your proposal.  If you are required to provide detailed specification and/or plans for the submission to building control we would be happy to provide the service.  Please contact us, [email protected] and we will get in contact with you.
I hope you find the above helpful.  
Kind regards
