Applying for planning permission
Within the Lake District National Park you will need planning approval for all but the smallest domestic extensions. Outside the Park restrictions on building work are less onerous but many extensions will still require planning approval.
If your project will need planning permission then, as part of our design process, we will liaise with the local planning department and establish a design and choice of materials that would be most likely to gain permission whilst also responding to your design ambitions. We would also highlight any other issues that may influence whether permission will be granted and find solutions to them.
Once we have discussed your project in detail and agreed a design with you we would prepare all the necessary drawings and forms to submit an application to the planning department.
