Planning Applications and Appeals
Landivar Architects are highly experienced and preparing and submitting detailed planning applications. We hold a good relationship with the Local Authorities and have a high success rate in achieving planning consents for our clients.
The construction of new buildings, substantial alterations and additions or a fundamental change of use of land or buildings will, in most cases, require planning permission.
Planning permission is not generally needed for internal alterations to buildings that do not affect their structure or external appearance, for small external works, or most works of repair and maintenance. However you should always check first.
Different planning requirements apply in Conservation Areas or for Listed Buildings.
However, there are some forms of development, which do not require planning consent, or are granted consent by statute or other statutory instrument.
We can advise on the particular issues involved in your project and prepare drawings and written statements in support of a planning application. We have a in depth understanding of the planning system and can provide the strongest case for a positive consent.
