Permitted Development

Certain projects come within the General Permitted Development Order which allows you to carry out works without the need for full planning permission. In these cases, you would still need to submit outline drawings to the local authority to obtain confirmation that no planning permission is required.

DS Architectural Design has formulated a unique, expedited and cost-effective Express service which you may be able to utilise for your Permitted Development projects.

Building Regulation Applications

Even if you do not need to obtain planning permission for your project, in the vast majority of cases you will still need to obtain a building regulations certificate, by supplying specific detailed information about your project such as the materials used, safety and installation requirements and the structural calculations and specification notes.

DS Architectural Design has formulated a unique, expedited and cost-effective Express service which you may be able to utilise for your Building Regulations applications.

New Builds

The most exciting project of all!!

If you want to commission your own, unique design there are many factors to consider, from conceptual design to structural calculations to the important planning application.

Alterations

If you wish to make changes within your property, your builder may require formal drawings and structural calculations to work to.

Change of Use

Every property is allocated a use class. Where you want to change from one use to another e.g. residential to retail, you may need to apply for planning permission for the change of use.
