We advise that you obtain written clearance of planning permission from your local planning authority at the earliest stage of your project, and this is something that we are able to do for you. While many of our buildings meet the planning requirements for development without permission, experience shows that permission is often required because of unique site circumstances such as being in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in a conservation area, or alongside a listed building.
We offer a full planning service, where we will make the application on your behalf for your complete peace of mind and monitor its’ progress throughout the statutory approval period. Alternatively we can supply you with the necessary plans for your own submission.
Many types of buildings and structures can be built without the need to apply for planning permission and this is known as permitted development. Once we have visited your site we will be able to advise you of the most appropriate planning strategy.
In rural areas oak framed buildings are the preferred type of structure, as they are considered to have more a rustic appearance than other brick structures.
