Have an idea for your home but no idea how to go about it? Unsure if you need to seek planning permission?  Live in a conservation area or own a listed property & overwhelmed by the legislations?

Building & renovating can be extremely stressful with a lot to navigate along the way (& that’s even before the work starts..). We pride ourselves on our customer service & are always here for advice or to lend a helping hand to our clients. From completing planning applications with local council & managing building notices all the way through to full building planning applications with building control, we know it like the back of our hand. We also have a great relationship with our local planning authority & independent building control officers.

Certain minor changes to your property may be covered by permitted development which allows you to extend an existing house by a certain percentage & carry out certain improvements, without the need for planning permission.
