Planning Approval Drawings
Established and Experienced Planning Agents Operating throughout the UK with an extensive portfolio, presenting a wide range of successful Planning Applications, both Residentially and Commercially.
Good design, research and detailed planning drawings are at the heart of making an effective planning application.
Before submitting an application the importance of planning is paramount. Careful and professional planning can significantly improve the potential for a positive outcome of an application.
We can provide planning applications for a vast variety of proposals, with our in depth knowledge of residential planning, and small commercial projects, such as: house extensions, loft conversions, basement extensions, and garage conversions along with change of use on a variety of buildings.
Collaborating with both client and local authority, we will produce planning applications identifying and understanding considerations associated with a proposed development.
Our team work closely with our clients, delivering both an expert and intuitive approach to their development. It is our intention to use our expertise to inform our client and produce a service that delivers the intended design, function and value for money of both design and outcome.
Although councils will attach great importance to the plans and design and can refuse a development of poor design, their planning policies considerations and decisions can vary and there are many issues that need to be considered. Our vast experience in architectural design and planning allows our team to articulate any findings within the development process to achieve effective results.
Some developments do not require planning permission and are covered within the Permitted Development rights. For further information or help on a project please contact us and we will be happy to discuss this in greater detail with you.
Before we undertake any design project we like to complete a feasibility study, assessing the history and context of the proposal and its viability. We research the local planning authority history and establish what previous planning applications to neighbouring properties have been proposed, either accepted or refused. We also examine whether the property is in a Conservation Area, is a listed building or within a floor zone. These factors would affect the planning application and additional documentation is required to supplement the proposal.
Following the initial feasibility assessment, which is conducted remotely, a survey would need be carried out (this can be in the form of a measured on-site survey or an online survey – please take a look at our online drawing services, information and our measured site surveys information to decide which is the best option for you). A survey will gather all the existing information required for the application and will include all dimensions of the building along with a photographic survey which will visually document all the existing site areas. Usually within 1-2 weeks, the initial drawings are prepared with options for the client to consider and these can be discussed with our consultants for the best proposal. We always ensure good communication with our clients, liaising with them the best design solutions, amending drawings to the client’s satisfaction but making sure that they remain feasible for the planning application. Once everything is finalised and approved by the client, the application will be submitted to the local authority.
