The local council is required by law to prepare a development plan for the area every 5 years. This plan acts as a reference point when making planning decisions.
Your local council deals with planning applications and if you are looking to build a new house on a plot of land you will need planning permission.
For small developments the planning officer will make the decision, however in some instances local councillors will decide. Part of the process involves notifying neighbours and the council will also publicise the application.
Before building commences you will also need a building warrant. This is to ensure the proposed build will meet building regulations.
As part of our project management service we work with a planning consultant who checks the plans before submission and guides your build through the planning process.
