Design & Planning Clinic

If you've got yourself a building plot, but perhaps need further advice on the design you are able to achieve or how to get planning for that design, come along to our Design & Planning Clinic where we will be offering one-to-one appointments with experts in each field, to help address those questions.

If you own or have identified a plot and wish to know if it’s suitable for building or what type of design you want, you might be interested in our Design & Planning Clinic. You'll be able to book an individual appointment to discuss your specific plot, with more detailed information on Design & Planning so that you are better equipped to move to the next stage of your project.
You’ll be speaking to our Planning Expert, and/or one of our experienced Self Build Consultants. They’ll assess the suitability of your plot for development, taking you through anything that might need addressing prior to you making a planning application.
You’ll learn about the kinds of house styles that your local authority is likely to accept and how these can be tailored to suit your needs. 

Our design expert can discuss with you what you're hoping to achieve, considering your available budget, and how you want the house to look both internally and externally. They'll take you through the design stages - feasibility, concept, and outline design and detailed design development. They can  also show you our Ideas Books, so you can get an idea of the quality that's possible when you build with Potton. 

Our planning expert can take a look at the specific plot - any design restrictions that may present, the house position that best fits the plot, and how the house needs to fit in with the street scene and local vernacular. They'll also go through the work involved in preparing for Building Regulations submission.
Book your 40-minute appointment using the form below, and don’t forget to confirm your site location so our Planning Expert can appraise it beforehand. 

We’ll need some more details from you before confirming your appointment and will require you to complete a quick form which we will send to you when you have sent in a booking form.
