When contemplating a project the first step would be to determine if Planning Permission is actually necessary. For most projects such as new build, house extensions, loft extensions etc, planning will of course be required. Are there any legal or other restrictions over the property? These may appear in your Title Deeds. Historic buildings will also have further requirements and permissions that will need to be taken into consideration.
Assuming that an application for Planning Permission is needed, the next step is to determine what the Local Authorities have in their overall plan for the local area and how you can tailor your requirement to hopefully fit within this. Getting a good understanding of how the application process works is important and it is also useful to get a good feel for how other people have approached similar situations.
In some cases a Planning Application may be rejected. Keep in mind that you can always put in a Planning Appeal by modifying your application and hopefully getting it closer to meet the requirements of the planners. This can sometimes end up being a long and drawn out process.
The building regulations are about making sure all buildings are habitable, safe, dry and warm, when building or making alterations to your home. Getting building work approved by your local council’s building control team, guarantee that the work is safe and up to building regulations standards. Notifications given to the local authority before, during and on completion of the project.
