Here you'll find everything you need to know about the process of obtaining planning permission. Regardless of your level of prior knowledge, this section is a great way to find out either the basics, or delve into more detailed aspects of the planning procedure. Right from the get go, you've got to work out whether you actually need planning permission to go ahead with your extension or renovation, or whether permitted development rights will cover your project. If you have no idea, then don't worry - this information can be easily found in our blogs. If you don't need planning permission and are eligible for permitted development rights, we still advise you get a lawful development certificate for your upcoming build. From here, we take you through both what happens during the planning process, and the steps you need to take afterwards. In the fairly unlikely case that your planning permission is refused, our blogs (and our architects!) can help you adjust your application in order to be more successful the next time. Luckily for the homeowner, being refused previously does not affect your current application... yay! Our blogs are able to guide you through every step in order to ensure that your planning process is carried out as smoothly as possible.
