PLANNING SUBMISSION SERVICE

We have an experienced ADMINISTRATION department who will help you with the whole submission process. The whole registration process can be quite daunting getting all the correct paperwork in place. The hired Admin. team will assure that all mandatory documents are filled in such as CIL forms, Application forms and all drawings to the correct scaling, Block & Site Location Plans are uploaded. (as these are the requirements of the council). Let Admin. take the work off your hands as it is a specialised field and any missing will delay the process.

We have an ADMIN. department to register all applications on your behalf. Each application takes around an hour and a half to put together. Admin. prepare all the necessary documents needed for each application being set off saving you time in getting it right the first time around. We make

sure the correct application is sent off and

save you the headache in dealing with

the council for a small fee of £110+vat. The

following is prepared on each submission:

  • BLOCK PLAN - Scale: 1:500

  • SITE LOCATION PLAN - Scale: 1:1250

  • CIL FORMS COMPLETED

  • ACCESS AND DESIGN STATEMENTS*

  • HERITAGE STATEMENTS*

  • APPLICATION FORMS

  • ALL MANDATORY DOCUMENTS OK

The whole process of the submission takes

approx. 2 to 3 working days and we

confirm by email that all has been submitted

successfully via the planning portal. Payment instructions are then emailed over to you for you to make the necessary payment to the council. The council will then validate the application in their own time frames which is usually within 10 working days. If in the event the council request further documentation then the applicant will be informed to prepare this. Depending on what further material is needed such as heritage statements, fire strategy statements, arboricultural reports, bat surveys we at DISCOUNT PLANS will recommend specialist companies that will prepare these documents for you at competitive rates.

REGISTRATION VIA THE PLANNING PORTAL

Using the PLANNING PORTAL is the easiest way of submitting your application over to the council. The Portal itself puts together a summary of what documents are needed for your particular council. once all mandatory documents are downloaded then the Portal transfers all information with uploaded files to the council's planning department for validation. This is done all online at a click of a button saving you a considerable amount of time not like the old days of sending 5x drawings over to the council by post.

 SUBMISSION SERVICE  -  ONLY £132 - MADE EASY 

Do not fall for Builders giving you Advice that the build does not need planning permission. Our motto is that any drawing proposal created needs planning consent, either if it's in a form of registration to the Planning Department to obtain planning consent or by applying for a certificate of lawfulness it's the same principle in getting the council to CHECK - APPROVE the design in question. The Builder have no knowledge in the history of your house the planners do. The Builder have no knowledge of planning Law the planners do. For a small fee of £103, the council will examine the proposal and carry out all background checks on the property, if the design is deemed to have any errors the council address the issues for an opportunity to amend drawings to the interpretation to their satisfaction. Remember the Permitted development rights for householders can be interpreted differently from any one of the 32 Boroughs in London or surrounding counties within Herts, Essex, Surrey, and Kent so for that peace of mind under no hesitation a submission is essential as a negative outcome after a build has taken place without the correct certification is in place, any breach in planning control will create significant financial losses to put right. Taking short cuts are not worth the stress and financial losses which can occur if the misfortune would arise. Builders that book in start dates without the necessary approval notices in place is in our opinion not looking after the interests of their clients, it is a show of capture the job grab the money attitude. If however the homeowner has been informed from the beginning of the project by the building company of all the potential risks involved in starting the build without planning permission or PD then the responsibility will be left solely with the homeowner.
