Find a Planning Consultant today
The first step in any home improvement project is determining whether Planning Permission is required. See our advice here >
Assuming Planning Permission is needed, the next step is to determine local planning restrictions, targets and preferences so you can tailor your project accordingly. Unless you already have a local architect designing and submitting your plans, a good planning consultant should be able to help you through this process.
In some cases a Planning Application may be rejected. Keep in mind that you can always put in a Planning Appeal by modifying your application and hopefully getting it closer to meeting the requirements of local planners. Using an expert with experience of successfully appealing, particularly against your local authority, may make the process a lot quicker and a lot cheaper.
Filling in this form here will instantly give you a list of people who can help you. They will be a mixture of Building Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Architects, Drawing Technicians and other people familiar and experienced with the application process. In addition to their contact details you will also be given details of their experience and qualifications to help you make a choice.
We recommend you phone some of them and speak in general terms about your requirement. Before appointing a consultant and placing an order you should reassure yourself that your chosen supplier has satisfactory experience to provide the level of service that you require.
