Company Profile...

I have over twenty years experience in submitting drawings for planning permission and building regulations approval, including any structural calculations necessary.

I provide a fast,  reliable and inexpensive service. Contact me for a quotation and to arrange a free consultation visit to discuss your requirements.

I can then advise what permissions are required and then produce a provisional drawing for your approval prior to making an application. All prices quoted are fixed and not subject to any increase should the local authority require any alterations.

I oversee the process to approval stage including obtaining and filling in application forms and liaising with the local authority on your behalf.

Planning Permission...

Planning permission may be required. The purpose of this is to ensure your property doesn’t adversely affect your neighbours property with respect to privacy and light. The local authority will also consider the size and scale of the proposal and its relation to adjacent properties.

Some small extensions may not require planning approval providing they conform to certain criteria. You may find ‘the planning portal’ helpful but please feel free to ask me for advice.

Planning approval generally takes a minimum of 8 weeks depending on its complexity and requires a fee of £231 by the local authority for an extension.

Once planning approval is given you have 3 years to commence the works.

Building Regulations...

Building regulations are required to ensure the occupants health and welfare, considerations include structural stability, insulation, drainage, heating and electrics.

Most structures require building approval however there are exceptions such as some non-habitable constructions. Please download our free 'building regulations explanatory booklet' for more information.

A fee of approximately £120 to £200 is required by the local authority for an application for a small extension. Fees for larger extensions depend on its size or a proportion of building costs.

Once approval is given you have 3 years to commence the works.
