Planning Permission

We help our clients make the case for planning approval, and have an outstanding record of success.

CDB has an outstanding track record in helping clients to secure planning consent quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. From residential and specialist schemes, to New Build, Basements and Loft Conversions. We have a dedicated planning team that has worked with clients to fast track planning so that we minimise any delays on your project. Unlike many other consultancies we understand what our clients need and how local government really operates. Our team includes the very best consultants who have worked with developers to secure consent throughout the United Kingdom. We put together consultation programmes tailored to meet the requirements of a specific client and site. We don’t offer ‘one-size-fits-all’ packages, because no two sites are the same and neither are the communities within which they lie.

  • We offer advise and guidance
  • We Survey your property
  • We design & draw plans
  • We upgrade your planning drawings to detailed regulations packages
  • We submit to your council
  • We guide you through the process from start to finish
  • We guarantee to redesign and resubmit plans for free if refused
Your responsibilities

With all building work, the owner of the property (or land) in question is ultimately responsible for complying with the relevant planning rules and building regulations (regardless of the need to apply for planning permission and/or building regulations approval or not).

Therefore, failure to comply with the relevant rules will result in the owner being liable for any remedial action (which could go as far as demolition and/or restoration). The general advice is to always discuss your proposals with the relevant Local Planning Authority and Building Control Service before starting work.

Other considerations before you start work

There are a number of issues in addition to those directly connected to the planning and building control regimes that you should consider before starting work. Even if your development does not require planning permission, it may be liable to pay the Community Infrastructure Levy.
