Planning Permission


Planning Permission London

By working with dozens of councils across many years, here at Freedom Homes Architects, we are experts in navigating the often tricky, planning approval process. The first hurdle to beat with many projects is securing planning approval which often requires carefully considered architectural design. Our experience with councils across London has prepared our team to gain planning approval for any residential project, no matter how ambitious it may seem. As well as our hands-on approach with the interior aspect of your project, we are in close contact with the planning officer working on your planning application, ensuring planning approval is received as swiftly as possible. The level and detail included within our design drawings allows planning officers to accurately asses and consider your proposal unequivocally and efficiently. If you
would like to discuss the planning process in detail, get in touch with our office today.

The Planning Process


Property Survey

Our dedicated site survey visits your property, to measure and gather the necessary information for our design team to work from. This will be followed by a virtual design meeting with your dedicated architectural designer to discuss your proposal in detail. During this, we will discuss the internal design of your proposal, planning permission considerations, and exterior design options. We will also share similar proposals we have worked on in the past to generate ideas for your project.

First Draft Plans

We will have a very quick turnaround
time for your first draft plans, delivering
them within 12 working days of the
design discussion. You are then
welcome to revise the plans in any way
like until you are completely satisfied
with the design of your property.

Application Submission

As soon as we have the final design place our administration team will organise the relevant approval application with the council. We keep in close contact with the council during the application process to allow the planning officer to complete the application as efficiently as possible. During the assessment process, we will organise the party wall notices and discussions with building contractors to allow for construction work to begin shortly after planning approval is received.

Applying For Planning Permission

Approval from your local council is required prior to the commencement of building works. We work closely with the planning department throughout the application process to ensure approval is awarded as quickly as possible. Our years of experience has allowed us to understand the exact council requirements, giving you the very best chance of receiving approval for your proposal.
