Planning & Building Regulations


Planning & Building Regulation

Whether it’s a new housing development or a simple renovation; for any construction or renovation project to run smoothly, it’s essential that all of the necessary planning permission has been obtained and that the work receives building regulations approval.

There are countless ways in which planning permission can cause problems and delays to your project, often leading to a knock-on effect that causes issues with scheduling, contractors and budgets. Poorly-prepared planning applications and failure to properly assess project plans are frequently the root of these setbacks.

At Silk Sharples Jennings, our specialist team will work with you during the critical early stages of your project, identifying specific building regulation requirements and advising you about the proper planning protocols. This typically involves discussing aspects of your build with the planning department, creating pre-application submissions and liaising with other relevant parties. The additional preparation time ultimately prevents and addresses issues before they arise, keeping your project on time and within budget overall.

We work with clients and projects of all sizes, from large new-builds to home refurbishments and extensions. Every property has unique requirements, so we work to closely with local authorities to monitor each application and ensure we achieve the most efficient results for you.

If you are currently in the early stages of project planning then we would be happy to discuss your requirements. Our team also offer Architectural Design services and Construction Project Management, to provide a comprehensive package for building planning, design and construction.
