Planning Application Project Stages

For more information on our bespoke design advice service and planning application submissions process please call John Irwin on 07562 724621 or complete the Enquiry Form here and we will respond as soon as possible.


We conduct a thorough physical site survey for planning applications. This survey includes precise dimensional measurements of the site, as well as a comprehensive investigation of the existing building structure. This survey helps us gather accurate data to inform the planning process and ensure that your project is feasible and compliant with regulations.


Following the completion of the physical site survey we are able to clarify your design parameters. From this initial consultation and preliminary sketches, the full building plans can be prepared including any alterations and additions that may be required.


To complete the planning application submission correctly to the Local Planning Authority the planning submission requires detailed scale drawings, completed application forms and the submission of appropriate fees. A precise and analytical submission prepared by Planning Application Services will give you the upmost opportunity for a successful planning application.

Structural Design

Structural Design

If your building project has complex design requirements, Planning Application Services can provide expert structural design services to ensure the stability and safety of your structure. Depending on the project's complexity, we may engage the services of a professional structural engineer to review and approve the design. We will work closely with you to create a design that meets your needs, while adhering to all relevant regulations and standards.

Building Regulations

Building Regulations

For larger building projects, the submission of building regulations for approval is typically required. Building regulations relate to the quality of the construction and the compliance to current building regulations. Planning Application Services will manage the application and the liason with the building control department in your Local Council Authority on your behalf.

Scope of Works

Scope of Works

Planning Application Services can prepare a comprehensive scope of works document that outlines the specific details of your project for your building contractor to tender.
