Planning Applications


Our planning consultants aim to give you a comprehensive understanding of the planning process. Ideally, we need to be involved during the initial design phase of your development, that way we can make you fully aware of any likely planning issues that may be encountered during the planning application process. We will meet with you to discuss your proposed development and discuss the next steps. We provide you with an idea of the estimated costs involved for the planning application, and work with you to minimise them. We will introduce you to our comprehensive list of services and give you an idea of where you could benefit from our help. Using our Local Planning Authority contacts, we will develop a plan to ensure that you have the highest possibility of receiving the planning permission that matches your development's requirements. We will undertake all required liaison with the local authority, and compile and submit all relevant supporting documentation to accompany your application. We are proud of our success rate for planning application consent. We will ensure that all possible issues have been discussed and that you are aware of any complications that might be raised. We cannot guarantee success of any planning application, but you can be assured that our reputation and previous track record ensures that you have the best possible chance of success. Please contact us for a no fee consultation to discuss your future development.


  • Step 1 - Initiate contact through the Enquiry Form on our Contact Us page.
  • Step 2 – Free Onsite Consultation. We will come out to you to discuss your requirement and put together a bespoke plan for achieving your goals.
  • Step 3 - Quotation.  After our initial meeting and assessment of requirements, we will be in a position to provide you with a fixed price quotation for the works.
  • Step 4 – Site Survey. Once instructed a member of our team will visit the property to perform a measured survey and if required we can use our laser technology to produce a topographical survey.
  • Step 5 – Design Phase. Based on your requirements we will design a scheme to meet your needs. We will provide you with draft plans to review, to ensure the project will exceed your expectations.
  • Step 6 – The Planning Process. We will advise if Planning is required, not all building work requires planning permission. Your proposal may fall under 'Permitted Development Rights' and we can advise you of this. Once established if planning is required, we can explain the type of application needed, submit pre-application advice to the Local Planning Authority if necessary, and submit the Planning Application.
  • Step 7 – Building Regulations. Many projects will require Building Control Approval, and we can prepare and submit this for you.
