| PLANNING & DESIGN
If you want to build or extend your home, Highgrove Building & Roofing will help you through the design and planning process. We will prepare all the drawings for Planning Applications and for Building Regulations and submit the applications on your behalf. If your project comes within the rules for Permitted Development we will obtain confirmation from the planning department and produce construction drawings.
Our approach is simple and cost effective – We understand that most homeowners know what they want to achieve and we offer the advice, experience and expertise needed to make that reality. Our service will take you step by step from an initial feasibility study through to detailed construction drawings. We offer a personal, professional and affordable service.
Feasibility – advice
on what might be possible, can you have a loft conversion or room over
Submit the Application – once the design is finalised we then add
detail and other elements required by the planners, complete the application
form and submit. Following submission we may be asked to change the design
by the planners – this is usually straightforward.
You now have permission to build
No more than half the area of land around the "original house"*
would be covered by additions or other buildings.
* The term "original house" means the house as it was first built
or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date).
Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may
have done so.
