About the Clinic

  • Each private clinic is a 40 minute appointment
  • When booking the clinic we will need to confirm your site location, so that our planning expert can appraise your plot and prepare in advance
  • We also require you to complete an easy simple form, once the booking is confirmed


Our self build consultant will discuss your aspirations, and ideas. Talking through each stage of the project, to understand feasibility, concept and budget. There is also an extensive ‘Ideas Book’. To help guide your design preferences and the quality of build you can expect from a Potton home.


Our planning expert will take a look at your specific plot. You’ll learn about the house styles your local authority is likely to accept and how these can work for you. They will help identify any further design restrictions and look at how to get the most from your plot. With an insight of the work involved in preparing for Building Regulations submission.
