“… pretty pictures to show the Council …”
Once you know what you would like to get permission for then a planning application is the next step. Not all works on houses require a formal planning approval and those that don’t are called Permitted Development and clients should protect themselves by getting a Certificate of Lawful Use . Planning drawings tend to be very pretty architectural pictures to show how well the idea will fit with Council policies. We know all of the local Council’s well – and we are an accredited agent on Waverley Borough Council’s list - and have a very good record of gaining consents. In fact we can get consents where many architects can’t!
