01 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Do I need plans for an extension?

If your proposed extension requires a planning application you will need plans for the planning application as well as plans or technical drawings to obtain building regulations approval.

If your proposed extension falls within permitted development you may not require plans but you will still require technical drawings to obtain building regulations approval.


Do I Need Planning Permission For a Conservatory?

Mostly no but in certain circumstances you will need a planning application. Checkout the Planning Portal for further details or give us a call on our helpline number at the top of the page.


How Much For Extension Plans?

We get asked this question every day and the answer is always the same. The price depends on the project and the work involved. No two projects are the same and some can take twice as much work.

How Long Does It Take To Get Plans Done?

We try to turn out plans within 14 / 21 days after instruction but occasionally we are much quicker or a little bit slower depending on the workload.

It also depends on the quality of the design brief and the amount of revisions required to arrive with a final set of plans.

Some projects are straight forward whilst others are not or need approval from various parties which can cause delays.


Who Owns The Copyright For The Plans We Produce?

We do. What is standard practise is that the designer holds the copyright and assigns a license to the clients for the project.


Do We Need To Have a Contract To Have Plans Drawn Up?

Yes. Every project we do requires an instruction that you agree the costs and terms of service before we can proceed.


Who Deals With The Planning Application?

The client decides as to whether the designer or the client deals with the planning submission to the local council.

We generally recommend that you use our services to submit plans as it can be problematic if you haven’t done it before.


Can I get a FREE Design Consultation?

Unfortunately not as there are far too many people out there who just love to fantasise about extending their property without having the means to do so. We did offer free consultations at one point but it was abused to the point of absurdity.


Can I Get a Feasibility Study Done To Extend My Property?

Absolutely yes. The feasibility study is an excellent method of determining how best to extend your property without making any kind of commitment.

A feasibility study will highlight the various option for extending a particular property and provide a fair idea of expected costs.

Our fees for a feasibility study is £600 but should you proceed and instruct us to provide architectural services for your project we will refund your account with 50% of the fee.

Generally speaking it is money well spend if you are unsure as to how best to extend and want a designer to visit and provide a report.
