After we’ve taken on-site measurements, we draft full CAD drawings. Then we submit them to the planning department.
Planning Permission is basically a way for us to ask whether we can carry out the proposed alterations to your property. Once this is put forward- it can either be granted (sometimes subject to certain conditions) or denied.
We will act as an agent for you, if you encounter any issues with your planning and to discuss any planning related queries which may arise during the planning process.
Does Everyone need planning permission?
Your local planning authority (LPA), usually a department of the council, is responsible for deciding whether a proposed development should be allowed to go ahead.
Most new buildings, major alterations to existing buildings and significant changes to the use of a building or piece of land need this permission.
However, certain minor building works, known as permitted development, don't need planning permission. This is because the effect of such developments on neighbours or the surrounding environment is likely to be small. For example: building a boundary wall below a certain height. Similarly, a change of land or building use is classed as permitted development if it’s within the same use class.
