Our Approach to Planning Permission

Our preferred method of obtaining planning permission is a Householder Application (1). However, we submit the same plans under the Caravan Act (2), so that should any objections be raised, we have a ‘safety net’.

Our Approach to Planning Permission

This dual-approach ensures that the planning stage is no longer than necessary, and that building works can start as soon as possible.

Planning Permission Timeline

Initially, we will prepare and submit the application to your LPA. Once validated (which can take up to four weeks), the planning application process takes eight weeks.

Planning Permission Timeline

Throughout the process, our planning expert will engage with your case officer to address any concerns and ensure that the application has the best chances of being successful. Any changes required by your LPA will be fully discussed with you prior to them being agreed with the LPA.

Planning Permission Timeline

Of course, there are obstacles that can delay this process; usually planning objections or a specialist survey request. This means that the timeline isn’t set in stone, rather an example of the process for most of our customers.
