Do you need Planning Permission?

If you are building something new or making major changes to your home, you will most likely need planning permission. Whatever your building project, we will work closely with you and liaise with Planning Officers to keep the process running smoothly.

Our team can produce a full set of drawings showing the existing property/site and proposed development. We will help you achieve a design that combines your vision and fulfils the requirements of your Local Authority. If required, we can also provide Architectural Drawings.

Has your planning application been initially refused? We can advise on the process of resubmitting a modified application or appealing the decision. If you own a Listed Building, you may need Listed Building Consent instead. There are also a few permitted developments that don’t require planning permission. Speak to our team for more information.

What is Supporting Documentation for Planning Applications?

Your application must have supporting documentation, such as a Location Plan and Site Plan. Our team can produce any necessary supporting documentation for your project, including:

  • Design and Access Statements
  • Flood Risk Assessments
  • Sustainability Report
  • Assessment of Utilities to the development

Some of your accompanying documentation will need preparation by a specialist, such as ground contamination testing or air quality assessment. We work with a selection of trusted suppliers and can organise any specialist documentation for you.
