Glasgow Planning Applications

Looking to extend or alter your current property? It is more than likely that you will need some form of planning permission from the local authority. Whether you need planning permission for an extension, garage conversion or a completely new build, at Archiplan Glasgow we provide planning applications across Glasgow to ensure that your property development is compliant with the latest building standards.

Why do you need planning permission?

There are many reasons why you may need planning permission for your property. Essentially, making an alteration to your property may affect its appearance, its size, or it may impact the area that surrounds the property. The council therefore need to ensure that your new development is not going to affect your surrounding neighbours or have any environmental impact. Gaining approval from the local authorities for your property development can often be a lengthy and stressful process.
