Full Planning Permission
Full planning permission is a detailed planning application for property development.
Any owner proposing to alter, extend, build or change the use of premises must apply for planning permission for development from the local authority. Full Planning Permission is required for many alterations to your property that affect the size, appearance, position/location, materials, access, parking facilities and any environmental impact they will have surrounding your property.
Building Warrant Applications
Building Warrants are required for all internal and external alterations to ensure compliance with the Building Standards. A building warrant must be applied for, and granted by the local authority verifier before any building work can commence.
Building Standards ensure that all new or alterations to buildings comply with the Building Regulations which set the national standards for health and safety. The detailed requirements of each Building Regulation are contained in the Technical Handbooks.
Structural Engineering Services
Once your Building Warrant application has been reviewed by the council, and depending on the complexity of the proposals, they may ask for an SER (Structural Engineers Report) and/or Certificated of Design and Conversion.
This is a normal request and we can take care of the whole process on your behalf with our recommended engineers who carry out work on our behalf at very reasonable rates.
