How to Secure a Planning Permission?

According to the latest housing surveys, 25% of homeowners  (appr. 4.5 million people) – think planning permission is the biggest obstacle to getting home refurbishments done. Unless you already have an expert team of architects designing your project with expert planners submitting your plans, with a track record of obtaining planning permission. This surely can be helpful in determining local planning restrictions, targets and preferences to ensure your project is tailored accordingly.

How Much Does a Planning Application Cost?

Making a planning application is risky, and it becomes riskier the less you’re prepared for it. This is because accurate drawings with correct technical information are a prerequisite to both getting permission and being able to build what you get permission for. Planning consultants at Homz have full knowledge of the ever-changing planning policies that any project will be subject to.
