Pre Planning Advice

Is it worth getting Pre-Planning Application Advice?

One of the first hurdles in any home renovation project is obtaining planning permission. Most councils offer a pre-application advice service to homeowners. But is it necessary? It depends on your project and comes down to three things: cost, time and, of course, getting approval for a design you’re happy with.

What does Pre-Planning Application Advice cost?

The cost of pre-application advice for householders varies from council to council but is usually between £50-£200 for a meeting and follow-up letter. Most clients would agree the cost itself is not the prohibitive factor, particularly if it results in a smooth planning process and desirable outcome.

Why you should consider Pre Planning Advice

If you are considering a project that is not a simple case, then getting pre planing advice can be very useful.

Building Regulations Kent

Building regulations are a legal requirement and must be met on every extension, alteration or development project. Once planning permission has been granted an application to building control must be made to ensure full compliance before work is commenced.
