Planning Permissions

Residential conversions and extensions come in a variety of styles and specifications depending on individual needs, and we are here to advise and handle all your building permit and building control requirements. Once we have agreed the design of your project, we will manage the planning applications and lead you through each step of the process. It is important to bear in mind that statutory consents are the necessary permissions required when making changes to a property and that homeowners have a responsibility to comply with relevant and current planning legislation. Therefore, some, or all, of the following may apply:

  • License to alter
  • Landlords consent
  • Party wall agreements
  • Certificate of lawful development (permitted development)
  • Planning permissions
  • Conservation area consent
  • Listed building consent
  • Building regulations approval

Building Regulations

Building regulations are also a legal requirement and ensure any new building work is built to current building standards. We like to use Government Approved, Private Building Inspectors which means they are working for you and can to be more flexible with designs whilst still meeting all required building regulations. Some of the regulations that will need to be covered are:

  • Foundations and structure
  • Insulation
  • Ventilation
  • Thermal performance/energy efficiency
  • Fire safety
  • Drainage
  • Electrics
