Drawings & Planning in Egham, Twickenham & Weybridge

When you need planning permission for your home improvement, loft conversion or extension project, the team at Highline Design & Build can help with all the necessary drawings and planning you’ll have to provide.

Planning drawings will demonstrate to your local authority what your plans are, the proposed scale and dimensions of any extension, how your project will affect the external appearance of your property and how it might impact on your neighbours. 

As a key visual tool, they are an essential part of the planning process, and will be one of the main things used by the authority to decide whether your project can proceed. Once your project has been approved, our planning drawings will also be used as a reference when we come to do the building work.

Getting everything right first time

With many years of experience in the building trade, we have the knowledge and skill to compile these vital documents so that they accurately reflect your plans, and smooth your way through the planning process.

Don’t leave your project’s drawings and planning to chance – get it wrong and your plans could be seriously delayed, cost a good deal more, or even be cancelled altogether.

For more information, get in touch by calling or emailing us today.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
