Basement development is controversial and planning permission is required in almost all cases. Most LPAs have taken away even the limited permitted development (PD) rights that apply and have strongly restrictive policies. Structural advice is required in every case; advice on impact on heritage, trees, services and amenity are often other concerns. SC advise making a pre-application submission to narrow down the issues.
SC can advise on all stages of the development process and we will compile all necessary documents, prepare your application, submit to the planning department of your local council, deal with the planning case officer and answer any queries as we manage your case to LPA decision.
