You will need Planning Permission and Building Regulations Approval for any new build.  Once your house plans are Planning Approved, we will produce building regulations documents and submit them to your council on your behalf.

What you'll need...

New House Planning

All we need from you is some draft floor plan sketches and some photos of similar houses that you like the look of. There may be more communication during the design phase than a simple extension or conversion, as we make sure your online drawings are fine tuned to your needs. It will also give us the opportunity to ensure we communicate what is likely to be approved and what can be an alternative to more risky ideas.

New House Building Regulations

A Full Plans Building Regulations Application consists of detailed New House Building Regulations Drawings that are produced online by us and are pre-checked by the Building Control Officer before building work starts on site. Having a clear and detailed set of drawings and technical documents means you can be confident that your chosen contractor won’t be building anything that’s non-compliant which could mean paying for unnecessary and costly corrections. The documents we produce include all the relevant detailed section drawings, a specification and all relevant building notes to achieve Full Plans Building Control Approval. You’ll also have clear, detailed plans for your builder to work from, further reducing the risk of mistakes on site. In our experience, contractors who are given clear and detailed plans build with greater confidence, less intervention from homeowners and with minimal error.
