UK Planning App & Building Regs

The type and number of drawings you need to submit with your planning application will vary according to the nature of the proposal and the type of application. For a domestic extension you usually need to include the following architectural design drawings with your submission:

  • An ordinance survey-based location plan at a 1:1250 scale
  • A site plan at a 1:500 scale
  • All elevations at a 1:100 or 1:50 scale
  • Floor plans at each level at a 1:100 or 1:50 scale
  • A roof plan at a 1:100 or 1:50 scale
  • Context drawings and other representations

We also serve you by delivering assistance in planning applications that can be submitted to the planning portal. Planning applications are a series of legal processes that enable the board to decide if you are to go on with your project or not. As you would expect, our experience sets you at an advantage as we know all that is to be known about the design and drawings needed for applying.

Once you have received Planning Permission, you need to consider the requirement for approval under the Building Regulations. If you do some additional plans will be required, these plans need to be in far more detail than those required for basic Planning Permission approval. They define the actual method of construction and must demonstrate that the property will be built in a suitable manner to meet structural integrity, thermal insulation, and ventilation etc. Construct the ideal edifice today compliant with all design standards and regulations in the UK. With our wealth of experience, we can see your project through from start to finish, ensuring that every stipulation of the codes is honored. It is no secret that in the UK, Building Regulations can get complex especially for persons who aren’t regularly updated. Our services at CAS will come in handy in keeping you updated with the latest requirements and help you implement these guides to your project. We take advantage of our relentless commitment to excellence, our amazing team and our trusted solutions in delivering the best service to our dear clients.
