How Long Does it Take?

Did you already try contacting the local council and realised that it’s taking forever the paperwork before considering your proposal. The council’s pre-application appraisal will take 4-8 weeks to arrive.

While here at Homz, you can easily book your call with one of our chartered planners in the same day! Following your call, your planner will conduct the Pre-Planning Appraisal Report which will include all the answers in only 2 working days. Our chartered planners will review your project, examine the relevant planning policies, and analyse the relevant planning history before they send Planning Appraisal Report back to you.

Swift Response to Your Queries

Pre-Planning Advice you require will need to conducted on the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). You will need to understand whether the local planning authority are applying any constraints on your property (e.g. section 106, article 4 direction, potential neighbouring objections). The planner will then search for any evidence that could support your application or that could see it rejected (e.g. planning history of the area and planning policies.)

Get it Right Before You Invest

Planning approvals and rejections in your local area can serve as indicators of the feasibility of your project. At Homz, our Town Planners thoroughly examine all constraints and limitations that may affect your project’s success. This includes assessing whether your permitted development rights are at risk or if securing planning approval may be challenging.

What’s the Next Step?

Once we’ve done some preliminary research on your project, we’ll give you a call with the details you need, and then we’ll email you a Planning Appraisal Report. Following that, we’ll handle your entire architectural project or planning application from start to finish, including all necessary drawings.
