Do you need planning...?
We can asssit in feasibilty studies to discuss with the local authorities.
Planning regulations can be daunting, but Mustard House Design have considerable experience in planning projects and working with local authorities and with planning consultants, we can maximise the project you wish to build.
It is sometimes advantageous to get the local community or neighbours on board or at least aware of the scheme so once the scheme is published everyone is fully informed.
This isn't always the most appropriate approach, so we discuss with you how best to put together the application, do we need a pre-application to sound out the local authority, do we need to host a meeting with your neighbours to take them through what you'd like to do, and so on...
Whilst planning rules are generally consistent across the country, there are slight differences in the process which need to be explored and understood, and with permitted development rights, it may also mean you don't need planning at all.
Occasionally, listed building consent may also need to be considered which adds a further layer of complexity to the approach. And just because your house is Grade I or II listed, doesn't automatically mean you can't develop.
We can help and oversee the entire process and provide drawings and feasibility studies, submitting the application and dealing with objections and resubmissions until a successful conclusion is reached.
