Top Tips - Extensions and Conversions

Advice to help you focus on what you want out of your living space.

Initial Concept

Building an extension or conversion within your home is a complex process and needs careful thought every step of the way, which is why we would urge you to engage us at the very beginning to make sure what you planning is achievable in principle, and ultimately save you valuable time and money.

You can either visit our offices to talk through you plans or if you prefer, we meet at your property to discuss your ideas.

It is often a good idea to have a pre-application meeting with a planning officer to discuss your plans before you submit an application, however as most councils charge for this, we can provide support with preliminary designs and advice on issues that may be raised to ensure a positive outcome.

Design Approach

We will consider your proposal alongside your requirements to improve your living conditions and working with you, will come up with a solution that achieves the desired outcome.

With simple extensions we can provide scale drawings in house at a competitive rate, or if you prefer, we can recommend a selection of outstanding local architects or work with your chosen contractors.

Planning Applications

Filling out a planning application can be an arduous task and if you are unsure of what the Council will be looking for, disheartening.

Completing planning applications on a regular basis, we are proud to achieve a higher than average success rate for planning applications. We ensure we constantly keep up to speed with any recent application changes as well as the level of detail required relevant to individual applications, enabling us to quickly pull together any planning applications ranging from a simple policy summary to preparing a full planning statement.

If you have already submitted your application and the local planning authority have asked for mandatory documents, such as a heritage statement, we can also provide this information to support your application.

Appeals

Being refused Planning Permission can be frustrating but doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road. With our thorough knowledge of the planning system, we accept appeals for homeowners who have tried unsuccessfully to obtain planning consent, either by themselves or with another consultant.

The Householder Appeal Service is now a separate procedure for the independent Planning Inspectorate and we ensure that all appeals are submitted with a fully robust Appeal Statement that specifically targets reasons for refusal.
