Get free planning advice…

As part of our comprehensive service, in the first instance we will visit you at your home to talk through your ideas for extending your property, or to discuss your new build project. We will conduct a visual survey to establish any key factors likely to influence a planning or building regulations application and will advise appropriate measures to mitigate any potential issues, and offer suggestions to capitalise on any development opportunities.

We will explain exactly what types of extension you can achieve by utilising the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO) 1996 (as amended), which allows the construction of many types of home extension, including loft and garage conversions without need to obtain the usual planning consents (subject to the constraints of the GPDO).  Extensions, garage and loft conversions that can be progressed under the GPDO means that you will pay a lesser fee to the local planning authority and can typically obtain a lawful development certificate in a shorter time frame.

We will suggest possible layouts for your new space or new build project and share our experience to help you bring your own ideas to fruition. This invaluable initial consultation is completely free of charge for the property owner and is intended to provide you with an introduction to our range of services, and we hope that you will be inspired by the innovation that we are able to contribute to the design experience.  We are confident that you will be delighted with our design concepts and we will work closely with you to ensure that your space objectives are fully realised.
