Do you need planning permission?

Find out whether your home improvement project needs planning permission or building regulations approval.

For most customers the first step in any project is finding out whether the project is feasible, assuming the project is feasible, is planning permission required, what is the process, how long will it take, what is the likelihood of success and how much will it cost? 

There are many things that can potentially be done under Permitted Development provided they meet all of the necessary planning and design criteria and there are no hidden constraints that remove your rights.

Our RTPI certified planning consultants can answer all of your questions by conducting a planning permissions appraisal. There are never any guarantees with planning permission or permitted development because ultimately only your planning authority can make the legal determination. 

However, with a planning appraisal, we can let you know whether your proposed development would be feasible, assuming it is what the best route forward would be and the likelihood of success. 

Assuming the planning appraisal is positive we can then provide a quote for any services you want help with including architectural design, planning permission, building regulations and construction. Should you decide to instruct Studio Charrette can take care of everything for you from start to finish.
