Home Improvements

The planning system can often seem an over complicated way to secure the necessary permission for improvements to your property, particularly if the Council is resisting your proposal. 

We can explain what you can do without requiring planning permission and how to improve your chances of securing planning permission for an extension or other alterations. 

If things have gone wrong and you have been refused permission, we can assess your chances of securing planning permission at appeal and can help you prepare your case.

Sometimes property and landowners also inadvertently contravene planning rules.  In these circumstances, we can advise you on an appropriate strategy and negotiate on your behalf with the Council to resolve any enforcement matters.
