Will we need planning permission?

Planning permission & dealing with the council

You may well not need permission but, if you do, you should choose a company that’s experienced in working specifically with your councils.

Planning sometimes required particularly if you have a flat or your property falls within a conservation area.

We engage professional architects design team for all our projects, and they produce detailed drawings and specifications for your approval. We will almost certainly know the planning departments of your particular council and have a detailed knowledge of their requirements, and even how these can even vary from street to street.

We will submit drawings to the council and they will probably accept them with a minimum time of around eight weeks. After all, a lot of the individuals know us as well as we know them and appreciate that South London Lofts will have got it right.
