Planning Permission Projects
If you are looking to build beyond the limits of Permitted Development, or you are connecting up with a previous extension, then you will require Planning Permission first. This means the Council can ask your neighbours about the scheme and the Planning Officer makes a Decision. We will submit the planning application and liaise with the Council on your behalf as your Planning Agent, you just need to settle the Council's Application fee of £206 plus service charges.

Planning Permission: Two Storey Rear OR Side Extension
This service offers you either a two-storey rear OR side extension design that requires planning permission. It offers greater flexibility than Permitted Development projects and they can be connected up with previous extensions. We find that the vast majority of two storey extensions require planning permission. Subject to other planning legislation.
Our process for your two-storey rear OR side extension
Survey & Existing Drawings
We will survey your property and discuss your extension design. We ensure the Surveyor you meet at your home will continue with your project from start to finish.
We believe in fostering strong relationships that allow for revisions and adaptability. We require you to agree to proceed with the service before we can come out and visit your property. We require the Instruction to Proceed Form to be signed on the day, but we will only ask for the full-service fee once the existing drawings (how the house looks before the design works) have been sent to you.
This ensures you can see the quality of our work before paying the full-service fee (see Terms and Conditions for full details).
The existing drawings will be ready 5 working days from the Survey. At this time, we arrange payment and proceed with the design of your two-storey extension.
The existing drawings will be ready in 5 working days from the Survey
Once the full-service fee is settled, we will design the first draft of your double-storey extension. We will base the first draft on any ideas you had at the survey visit and combine them with our experience to create the design you desire.
We will continue to develop your double-storey extension design until you are happy for it to be finalised (subject to T&Cs), giving you the flexibility to consider all options including material size and placements etc.
Your designs can include brick, render, timber cladding, tiled pitched roofs, flat roofs, bi-fold doors, roof lanterns and skylights.
The first draft design drawings will be ready 5 working days from payment. Our rapid turnaround times allow you to apply for planning permission at your earliest convenience.

hen the planning design drawings are finalised, a submission to the Council is required. We will submit this for you and the Council will decide whether to approve it, request changes or refuse it.
We do not charge for submitting it, but the Council do charge an application fee of £206 plus service charges. For ease, we can provide you with a website link so you can pay this directly to the Council.
We will liaise with the Council and if any changes are required then we will come back to you and attempt to resolve the issues if you desire (see Terms and Conditions for full details).
The submission can be made in 5 working days from the drawings being finalised
