Planning Submission

Once concepts have been agreed, we will begin looking at various aspects of your design in much more detail:

  • Which materials and finishes should be used.
  • The size, position and proportion of any external doors and windows.
  • Structural openings.
  • Roof design.
  • Detailed layout of rooms.
  • Means of natural and artificial lighting.
  • Preferred drainage routes.
  • Key construction details.
  • External works.

It is very important to ensure that the details of the design submitted for planning approval can be implemented on the site as planning legislation has tightened a lot over the past few years.

Depending on the type of application that is being made, the level and type of information produced will vary.

Here at PAD, we are very experienced and familiar with all types of submissions. These include: listed buildings, conservation area consent, change of use applications, and all types of planning permission.

You can rest assured as your agent, we will not leave you hanging and figuring out how to do things on your own. We will liaise with the local authority on your behalf.

 

Once all the necessary forms have been completed and statements written, we will ask you to send us a cheque, made out to your local planning authority, to cover the planning fee for your application. Once this is received your application will be submitted and a full copy sent to you for your records.

 

How long will planning approval take?

Planning applications are usually registered within 7-10 days of receipt by your local authority and determined within 8 weeks of registration.
