Stage one is where you call us right from the beginning and ask us to design drawings for an extension of some kind for that new kitchen extension, new living room area or just taking advantage of the 6 meter rule the government have put in place to add value to your home. We will tell you
what is possible right from the beginning.
We know the rules, if you tell us what you
want then we will split the design up if you
cannot get it under one application then
we will get it under two! applications!
getting you the results after the end process.
The council do not make it easy for us at all.
For example "Rejecting a 6 meter extension
under a house holder application and you
paying the council £206 for the application
fee and then getting the decision back with:
"the design will be not in keeping with the surrounding area and due to the bulk and size, excessive size and dominance to your neighbouring property's we deem that this proposal will not be suitable for an the guidelines set out under clause??? under the planning act 2000??? blar blar blar"
THIS IS ALL THE BUREAUCRACY WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH AND LEARN THE LOOPHOLES TO GET YOU THE RESULTS YOU WANT. SOME COUNCILS DO NOT ALLOW CHANGES IF NO PRE-APPLICATION MEETING HAS BEEN SORT.
This has become a nightmare for company's trying to supply a service over to home-owners offering straight forward design requests that you want and have seen built in areas around you. The other way to get the design approved is submit the same 6 meter design but use the prior neighbouring consent application which is FREE!, sorry now all the councils what £96 for this small application by mean of just writing to your neighbours. After 2 weeks if no neighbour has objected and your design falls within the scope of PD guide lines then the design is classed as approved making non of the above householders rejections comments valid. "yes very confusing"

rap around extension
8 weeks £103
LOFT CONVERSION - examples
Under permitted development you can get a hipped to gable design with a full width rear dormer approved for £103. Submit the same design as a householder application and pay £206 and get the application refused due to SPD planning guidance, confused? well we are here to get the right design over to the council in the correct direction.
Under a planning application this design above is all you will get following the SPD planning guidance. Property's which are flats or in a conservation area need to stick to these rules where permitted development does not apply. Most house's fall under PD, but some new build property's have restrictions in place so you will need to check your deeds.
