We help to secure planning permission for home improvement projects across the UK
We understand that our clients may wish to make a range of changes to their homes such as alterations to allow working from home, the construction of ancillary accommodation and ‘granny annexes’ or extensions to existing buildings.
The regulations surrounding planning for householder works are complex and it can be unclear whether planning permission or other forms of approval are needed. In some instances the works might benefit from rights provided under permitted development regulations. We are able to provide our clients with clarity on such matters. We are also able to provide clear guidance on other issues likely to influence the successful outcome of householder works such as the potential effect of works on neighbour amenity, on listed buildings or other heritage related issues and the need to take account of local design standards and guidance.
Our familiarity with the planning system means that we can provide our clients with the clear advice needed to navigate the process in order to make the changes needed. Where it is unavoidable, we can also provide support in the preparation of household planning appeals.
From the provision of initial advice onwards, we are able to provide clients with clear and realistic advice at every stage of the process.
Types of development:
- Granny annexes
