Planning Portal has enabled us to cover all Boroughs of England and Wales. We frequently deal with the following Boroughs on a regular basis..
PLANNING APPLICATION PROCESS
Not every project follows an exact process, but our experience has shown that the following process is an excellent guide for planning process.
We offer free initial consultation, it may include site visit. We always listen to your requirements and advise you best possible design to meet your requirements.
THE SITE SURVEY:
A member of our staff will meet you at the earliest agreeable time to measure and survey the existing building.
We will prepare a design proposal to meet your requirement as discussed in initial consultations and a copy of design will be sent to you by email for your approval/comments. We will revise the design proposals several times to meet your requirements in-line with Local Authority Planning Policy. Once you are fully satisfied with the proposed design then we will proceed to prepare a full set of drawing to support the Planning Application. We aim to complete all drawings within 10 working days.
We will prepare the Design Statement where relevant.
THE PLANNING APPLICATION:
We will complete the Planning Application form, and A copy of the completed application will be sent directly to you for your approval. The final plans are submitted on your behalf for local authority approvals.
During the period of the applications, without charge, we reply to local authority requests for minor alterations, changes and clarifications.
We provide comprehensive supporting documents to secure Planning Approval at the first application but however in case of refusal, the best option available will be discussed and the Revised Planning Application will be re-submitted without any additional fee.
