As of 17th January local authorities are increasing the fees payable for submitting a planning application.
As a brief example North Norfolk District Council’s fee for a Householder application will rise from £172 to £206.
Do contact us from more information.
Now is the ideal time to contact us to start drawing up your planning & building regulations drawings. If you have children, they are back at school and maybe the Christmas shopping frenzy hasn’t started yet!
With an 8 week time-frame at local authority and probably a couple of weeks with us, you should be all set to start work in early 2018/spring, meaning you can start thinking about tradesmen.
In the meantime, have a lovely week!

A special request to the clients we have drawn up plans for previously, we’d love it if you could send us some snaps of your new build, extension or conversion as it goes from the planning stage upwards, (along with your permission for them to be used on our website & social media)!
For the people who have their plans in for approval at local authority now, get ready to dig out the camera or have your mobile phone at the ready!
If you are looking to have plans and elevations drawn for a New Year build start, then do get in touch to arrange an onsite chat.
Drawings submitted by mid October ‘should’ in theory take 8 weeks to progress through your local authority planning department, with a possible decision pre Christmas.
We’ve just added more photos to our gallery, so do take a peek at the interiors and exteriors of some of the designs we have worked on.
You must apply for Listed Building Consent from the local authority planning department if you wish to make alterations to or extend a Listed property.
Firstly contact your local Conservation Officer at the Planning Department and discuss whether or not consent will be needed for your proposed works. Ask the officer for an outline of acceptable changes and his/her thoughts on your ideas.
When considering alterations, take time to consider preservation of the building, it’s location and it’s stand out features. Things that will enable the building to remain for future generations.
Do contact us to draw up your plans, we are happy to submit the application to the local authority.
Unauthorised works to a listed building is an offence and individuals can be prosecuted.
A planning authority can insist that all work carried out without consent is reversed.
If you are not in a rush for your building plans to be submitted to local authority, or are not ready, due to funds or purchasing of a property/plot, or you are on a holiday, do bookmark us and give us a call or email in Autumn or Winter.
We will be able to meet with you, draw up your plans and submit to your local authority, the planning process once submitted usually takes around 8 weeks.

It can be a challenge, but check out some of the following if you are hunting for a warranty for an upcoming self build home, which is usually seen as mandatory by lenders:
These warranties are technically known as ‘latent defects insurance’. Warranty provider’s will check your plans (known as a technical audit) and inspect the house whilst under construction.
Basically they are specialised insurance products that cover the first few years of the life of a new home.
There are also many companies (brokers) that will compare options for you based on your self build requirements.
