Securing planning permission for any development is a complex and multi-stage process, with the planning system subject to on-going changes in policy. Securing planning permission involves producing a series of technical drawings to specified standards, filling in relevant forms, liaison with the local council, site surveys, as well as consideration about access, nearby trees, and the impact on neighbours amenities.
Draycott Chartered Surveyors have good working relationships with the planning authorities, and we have an excellent record of successfully obtaining planning permission for clients. We can provide planning application services to support a number of different planning applications, including alterations and extensions, new builds and developments, retrospective applications, commercial building applications and change of use.
It may be that your particular development falls under the category of ‘permitted development’, which means that certain building works or changes of use can be carried out without having to make a planning application. Draycott Chartered Surveyors can provide full advice and guidance on whether your plans fall into this category, so that you have the correct authorisation before carrying out any costly work.
Should you require any advice in relation to Planning Applications or Permitted Development Rights, please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
