Planning Drawings

Plannings & Building Regulations Drawings

Architecture & Drafting

We can produce site specific architectural design solutions, from initial feasibility sketches through to detailed construction architectural drawings. Our architectural services also include surveying buildings and creating accurate scaled drawings of existing properties and working up full scaled planning application drawings. Planning Permission is usually required if you intend to alter the appearance of your home in any way with an extension, conservatory, roof dormers or should you wish to change the use or divide part of a building for use as a separate dwelling.

Permitted Development

If your work falls within permitted development rights you are required to have a lawful development certificate.

Building Regulations

  • We produce detailed construction drawings with comprehensive information for building regulations approval and the construction team. New buildings and most alterations to existing properties require approval from the Building Regulations Officer or Inspector. 

  • Building regulation rules are in place to ensure health and safety in or around buildings, but also for access and energy use in buildings.
