Design & Planning Permission
Loft Conversion & House Extension Planning Permission in Brighton
Our team are fully skilled, knowledgeable and talented, having completed many successful projects already in the Brighton area that involved loft conversion planning applications and loft conversion building regulations.
Our service deals completely with the whole of the design and planning process, kicking off with one of our CAD technicians visiting your home to discuss your requirements as well as ideas for loft conversion designs and ground floor designs, the planning process, construction methods, and indicative costings.
In order to progress to the drawings stage, we will undertake a measured survey, including dimensions and structural elements. You will then receive a written proposal from us showing the full cost of us preparing the plans. Once you have confirmed acceptance of our design brief, we will progress with the drawings, including details of construction methods, functional layout and the overall aesthetic architectural style.
Our Planning Permission Submission & Management Service
Producing your drawings will take just a few weeks and once ready, we will meet with you to approve them. We will then send the CAD drawings to the local authority planning department for approval as a permitted development, liaising with them during the loft conversion planning process. If the services of a structural engineer are required during the ground floor extension planning process we will arrange this. If large amounts of glazing comprise part of the design, we will network with a SAP assessor.
We also get asked, “Do you need planning permission for a conservatory?” and this is something that we will check on your behalf. Conservatories and single storey extensions that do not cover more than half of the garden do not always require planning permission if the height is no more than 4m, or 3m if within 2m of your boundary.
House Extension Building Regulations
We will also deal with loft conversion building control, which is all part of the same process. Your local authority building control department also needs to provide you with approval before construction can begin as gaining planning permission is just part of the procedure. Building control focuses entirely on the health and safety standards of the development. Our skilled design technicians will ensure that your proposal is checked for full building regulations compliance, connecting with the local authority to gain approval. This is necessary for both loft conversions and household extensions.
During the planning application and building control processes, we will deal with the provision of Design and Access Statements and development plans. The whole procedure is one of collaborating with the local authority home extension building control department and planning so that your plans gain approval in the fastest possible way. This is something that we take in our stride as we have already developed relationships with most of the planning officials in the area.
