Planning Applications 

Our premium planning application service deals with all types of planning applications including Householder and Full Applications. We also prepare applications for Listed Building Consent, for Change of Use and for Pre-Application Advice.


For urgent jobs please ask us about our Fast Track Service.


Our service includes the production of high quality detailed plans of your current property or site and any proposed new buildings, extensions or modifications. We manage the entire planning application process from your initial ideas and requirements, through to submission of the application and on to the planning decision. Please take a look at our projects section to see examples of our previous work.


Plans are produced using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and are delivered in both paper and electronic formats as standard. (Electronic delivery includes PDF format as standard and on request in CAD format (DWG or DXF)).


Our Premium Planning Application service starts with a consultation at your property to discuss your requirements and following discussions we will undertake a measurement survey inside and outside your property and take exterior photographs. We then produce a draft of the Planning Application including drawings of the existing property and with the proposed modifications. Once you are entirely happy with the draft we will issue the plans and submit them to the Local Authority for their decision. We'll keep you up to date of progress throughout the application process.


Our Premium Planning Application service includes:

 

  1. A planning consultation with you at your property. This provides us with an opportunity to understand your requirements and for you to ask any questions. Following discussions we will undertake a measurement survey inside and outside your property and take exterior photographs.  This meeting will typically take up to around 4 hours.  (We can also offer a Self Survey option if you've already prepared plans - please call for more details).
  2. Production and delivery of the following draft/initial plans
    • Existing and Proposed Elevations 
    • Existing and Proposed Floor Plans

  3. Production and delivery the Local Authority Planning Application form.
  4. Submission of draft plans and application form for your review.
  5. Update of draft plans and application in response to your comments. We will only submit your application once you have confirmed that you are entirely happy with the plans.
  6. Submission of your planning application to the Local Authority.
  7. We'll liase with the Local Authority regarding your application and keep you up to date with progress until the planning decision has been made.
  8. If your planning application is rejected we can modify and resubmit the plans or offer our Planning Permission Appeals Service.
