Submitting a planning application can be difficult, becoming costly if not done right. But self-building doesn’t mean that you have to know or do everything yourself. Our complete package is here to support you throughout each stage of your self build project. Let us take care of the planning details, so you can concentrate on the more enjoyable elements of designing your self build home.

Plot Appraisal Service

We operate a three step process. Helping you gain planning advice before proceeding with the full planning permission application:

Stage 1 - We will advise any constraints on your prospective plot and unlocking your lands full potential.

Stage 2 - If your land has potential, we'll review the planning against local policies. This will help determine what we may and may not be able to gain permission for.

Stage 3 - We will identify which specialist surveys you may need as part of your planning submission.

Our experienced team will guide you through the planning maze making sure your application is prepared and submitted correctly. We’ll monitor its progress with the local authority and negotiate with them as the decision date nears.
