Planning permission

How we help you get planning permission

Experts in creating designs and working with you at every step to secure planning permission

Experience of the planning process is critical to success in getting your plans accepted.

You need a team of design architects who are knowledgeable about the planning restrictions and risks specific to each project and geographical area and will advise you of the best solutions during the design phase.

Many of our clients have found that our approach to creating flexible, practical designs cuts down on the time and costs involved in gaining acceptance on planning permission.

Although each project is unique in its elements, the basic process remains the same.

Once the planning application is submitted, we’ll consult with you and liaise with the Planning Officer until the plans are approved. This stage can take up to 6-8 weeks or longer if alterations to plans are required.

Once planning permission is granted, we’ll create a second set of more detailed technical drawings which will meet building regulations and submit these plans to either the Local Authority or building control company. This part of the process takes a further 2 weeks. Our detailed plans can also be used for submitting to builders to obtain quotes for the work
