01 HOUSE EXTENSIONS IDEAS

House extensions have increased dramatically over the past 5 years and planning departments throughout the UK have reported a double-figure increase in planning applications.

Other factors include changes in the planning laws making it easier for homeowners to enlarge their homes under the permitted development rules which forego the requirement for a full planning application.

01 HOUSE EXTENSION IDEAS

Some homeowners mistakenly believe that because their extension falls within the permitted development rules that they do not require architectural drawings for their build. This of course is a mistake as regardless of whether your house extension falls under permitted development or needs a full planning application you will still need technical drawings to get building regulation approval. Technical drawings are detailed drawings showing details of the build specification to allow the local building control office to ensure that your proposed build conforms to the current building regulations.

Builders will also need plans in order to provide accurate costs so the way we recommend that you start your build is get some plans drawn up first.
