Fees and Charges (see Notes on required permissions below)

  • Consultation

    Properties within 75 miles of Glastonbury

    No charge

    Properties greater than 75 miles

    No charge in most cases

    All we ask is that we can arrange a time to fit in with other appointments in your area and that you have looked at the competitors first and are therefore in a position to make a decision on the day so that we can carry out the survey at the same time should you commission us to to carry out your design work.

  • Planning

To the survey of site and preparation of full plans including all elevations and floor plans showing existing and proposed layout; site and location plans and cross sections. To the production of one set of bound plans plus five sets for the Planning Application and a further four sets for your use. To the submission of all forms and plans for the application and to any minor planning alterations required.

    ( 750.00 to be paid as a deposit with balance due when plans completed ). For a larger area, we would negotiate a fee with you on receipt of further information.

Notes on required permissions

  • Planning permission is required to show that the Council will let you carry out the work.
  • Building Regulation approval is to ensure that any work is carried out correctly and safely.
  • Planning permission is not always required but Building Regulation approval is nearly always required.
  • Planning applications can take 2 to 3 months.
  • Building regulations can take 2 to 3 months if you go for the Full Plans method (where every detail of the construction has to be detailed on a revised plan and hence may limit the choices for the builder). This can be either simultaneously with the Planning Application (risky!) or after permission has been granted.
  • Building Notice approval only takes 4 days and allows the builder to agree each stage of the construction with the Council.
