Planning permission free consultation

Take advantage of our planning permission and applications service

Our fixed fee service allows you to obtain stress-free planning permission

Whether you are intending to have a log cabin, conservatory, porch, fence, shed or garage built, there’s one vital thing to consider before the building work starts – namely, planning permission and whether you need to obtain it. It may be the case, of course, that you don’t require planning permission for your given project, with the likes of loft conversions and house extensions often coming under the banner of permitted development and therefore simply requiring Building Regulations approval. For those projects that do require such permission, however, you’ll be thankful for our fixed fee service here at Architects for Home.

What you need to know about planning permission for conservatories

We can advise you on planning permission for your conservatory, guiding you through each stage of the planning application process. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to obtain such permission at all if your prospective conservatory fits certain guidelines. All you really need to do to get an idea as to whether planning permission will be required for your conservatory is contact one of our architects with a simple drawing of it. You will not generally require planning permission unless your conservatory takes up more than 50 per cent of the land that surrounds your home, including other buildings that have already been erected but are independent from your home. Your local council will be able to present you with a detailed list of the planning permission rules.

What else do you need to know about obtaining planning permission with us?

Get in touch with us now for a free consultation with RIBA architects, so that you can obtain planning permission with the minimum of fuss and at a reasonable cost to you. We can arrange all the planning permission required for the house plans and conservatories of all our London clients, and are committed to providing the highest standard of service. As soon as you make plans for any building work or demolitions, you will need to apply to your local planning authority, which will possibly be your local council. The planning department will then decide whether to allow your project to take place, a process otherwise known as giving planning permission. Here at Architects for Home, we can work closely alongside you to draw up plans and ensure that you submit the best possible planning application, with all details correct.

Whether it’s known as planning permission or planning consent, the goal of obtaining it is to be able to build on land or change the use of land or buildings. The way planning permission works in the UK is that the occupier of any land or building will not only require title to that land or building – otherwise known as “ownership” – but also “planning title” if construction or demolition work is to be done. As a general rule, you will need to apply for planning permission, and here at Architects for Home, we can offer advice and file applications for clients in London.
