Design & Planning Fee Structure
Potton offers a range of service options tailored to you
FREE 'no obligation' design consultation
If you already have a building plot our experts will sit down with you to understand what you would like to build and where you would like to build it. We will help you to explore how your home can be tailored to meet your needs, your budget and how planning approval can be secured.
Option 1: Full design & planning service £3,500+ VAT
You can choose to take our full design and planning submission service which removes the stress of navigating the complex and ever changing system of local authority planning, as well as specific codes and standards needed to gain building approval. This comprehensive package offers access to our extensive portfolio of individually designed homes to provide inspiration to beautifully tailor your very own design.
The fee for the full service described above, which includes the local authority planning application fee, is £3,500 plus VAT.
Option 2: Work with a Potton RIBA Architect
Alternatively, you could choose to work with Potton’s RIBA Chartered Architect, Hugh Owens. Hugh will tailor an Architectural service to meet the needs of you and your build and therefore the fee for this service is calculated on a project by project basis.
Option 3: 'Design only' service £1,500+ VAT
If you prefer to use your own architect or planning consultant to prepare and submit your planning application, we can still offer a full design service as outlined above for a fixed fee of £1,500 plus VAT.
We also offer a full building regulation submission service. In partnership with the local authority, we will submit the application on your behalf, including a full drainage scheme for the development, enabling you to start the build of your new home. The fee for this is £500 + VAT, excluding the local authority application fee.
Once planning has been approved and your order placed we will then take care of all the technical information needed to satisfy building control, including sustainability measures currently required by some local authorities, and any necessary energy performance assessments. As experts in sustainability, we will ensure your design is as energy efficient as possible, future proofing your home against rising fuel costs.
