We will be able to advise on whether or not planning permission is required once we have seen your house. We will check the Permitted Development technical guidance and if it’s not straightforward recommend we check with the council as the P.D. rules can be open to interpretation! There is a useful interactive house on the Planning Portal web site to give you a general idea what householders can do without planning permission:
After Planning Permission, the next step is for us to prepare more detailed Building Regulations Drawings and Construction Notes and to make a Full Plans Building Regulations Application.
We act as your Agent and submit all applications to the council on your behalf, you do not have to do any form filling.
If you don't already have a builder in mind, we can recommend builders we have worked with before.
