Submitting successful planning applications, Avoiding the pitfalls

07/04/2016

Anyone planning to extend their premises or to construct a new building faces the prospect of applying for planning permission. In the UK the planning system controls the use of land and what is built on it. Plus, it helps to protect the balance between industrial development and the need to improve and protect our environment. This balance is essential to ensure that we meet the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Before you begin any construction work, you will need to check with your local planning authority whether planning permission is required. There are various circumstances in which organisations need to apply for planning permission – from building new premises to changing an existing building’s use. Even if your project doesn’t require planning permission, the work may still need to conform to building regulations.

In most cases planning permission and building control approval are granted, usually within weeks. However, the planning application process can be a complex business.

We have identified nine steps to help you overcome the common mistakes and hurdles involved in submitting your planning application. These steps will give you the knowledge you need to apply with confidence and to ensure that your project is up and running as quickly as possible. Download your guide here, instantly
