We have dealt with large numbers of small projects including extensions, loft conversions, conversions to flats and remodelling.  We survey and produce drawings, then prepare proposals in consultation with clients for submission for planning approval.   Conservation and Listed Building consents are required in some instances, depending upon the property and the location.


We handle Householder Applications, Full Planning Aplications, Permitted Development Applications, Prior Approval Applications, Listed Building Applications.


Statutory National Planning Application Requirements for all planning applications:

Completed Forms, Site Location Plan, Other Plans/Information, Ownership Certificate & Notice,


Local Requirements can sometimes include:

Archaeological Assessment, Daylight/Sunlight Assessment, Heritage Statement,  Photographs, Survey Report/ Tree Protection Plan


Nomally we await the decision of the Planning Department before preparing the technical details needed for pricing of the building works, submission to the local Building Control Department and for the actual construction work.  Building Control check the quality of the design and the work on site and issue a Completion Certificate upon satisfactory completion of the project.  


We tailor our service to the client's requirements.  We usually manage and co-ordinate the input of any other consultants, such as Structural and Thermal Consultants.  


A high quality co-ordinated package of technical documents ensures that any potential issues are resolved before work starts, helping to ensure a smooth construction process.
