What’s the difference between Planning Permission and Building Control?

Planning permission – A Formal request to your local planning authority to build a new property, make a major change to an existing property, or change the use of your property.

Building control – A legislation to ensure that the design and construction of a building meets the current building codes and regulation requirements.  

Many of our new clients are unaware that Planning permission and Building control (also known as building regulations) are two separate forms of legislation.  

Some projects require both planning permission and building control approval, whereas other projects require just one of these applications, or neither! Ultimately, it all depends upon the type of property development you are undertaking.  Regardless of your requirements, our highly experienced in-house Planning consultant will guide you to ensure that your entire application is progressed with the best chances of success.

Some of our MANY happy customers…

EV helped us design a side return extension on our Victorian end terrace house. We’re very happy with the results and love our new space. I found their fees reasonable for the service provided.

Andrew Irvine.

Mark is knowledgeable, calm and nothing was too much trouble, even when we changed our mind on design a number of times. We can thoroughly recommend Mark and his team for your project.  

Tracey Jones.

With their support we have ended up with a beautiful family home with a “wow” factor. 4 years on the space still gets the same reaction from new visitors, which always makes us smile.
