When a new architectural building project is envisaged, it’s all too easy to become involved with an idea before knowing whether it will be legally permitted. Prior to consulting with either an Architect or Architectural Technician (such as CPA Planning Design), it is advised that you seek feedback from your Local Authority. There may be fees involved, however they are reasonable and allow you to gauge the ‘official’ opinion of the Planning Department, for more complicated applications such as multiple new builds or housing estates, it may be more appropriate to contact a private planning consultancy.
It can be very helpful to have draft sketches of the proposals with you, during any consultation and CPA Planning Design provides these for as little as £50.00. Once positive feedback has been received, accurate building design aiming towards formal planning applications drawings can commence. These typically include an Ordnance Survey extract, Floor plans, Elevations and where applicable, sections of the existing and proposed.
For more information or advice, please do not hesitate to contact CPA Planning Design via the Contact Form for architectural design and your planning application drawing requirements.
