Planning Permission


Whatever the nature of your building project, your proposal may or may not require planning permission. This is dependent on a number of factors such as scale, location or design.

We offer in-house planning advice in order to ascertain whether planning permission is required should you be in any doubt. It may be that you can undertake your building work under permitted development, providing it meets the necessary requirements, or you may need to submit a planning application.

As a first port of call, we recommend looking at the interactive guides on the Planning Portal in order to prepare for your project. These pages include detailed information about a variety of projects such as conservatories, extensions, outbuildings and porches and it may be that you can avoid the need for planning permission:
