What Drawings Do I Need For Planning Permission?

It goes without saying that having an extension or conversion to your property can be expensive, however, no matter what it is that you are looking to change or add, then chances are that you are going to see them as an investment for the future.

When the time comes to sell your property and move on, having an extension or conversion added is going to add value, which will mean more money for you.

The thing to remember about converting or extending your home, is that there are some things that you need to pay out for and some things that you may wonder whether or not you actually need.

Planning permission is not something that you can choose whether or not to apply for. It is something that you need and is required by your local authority. That said, not every building project does in fact need planning permission – please be advised that in normally ALL cases a building project WILL need building regulations approval!

Depending on what changes you are making, the size of the things that you are amending or where you live and the nature of your property – You may be covered by what is known as Permitted Development. 

The idea of Permitted Development is that you can make certain changes to your property without having to request full householder planning permission to make alterations. 

It some instances Permitted Development rights are removed on properties under an Article 8 directive, this is especially the case with many newer housing estates built in the new millennium.

Even if your project appears at first glance to meet the criteria of permitted development, the only way to be absolutely certain is to apply for something called a lawful development certificate from your local authority planning department.

Why Do I Need Plans When Making A Planning Application?

Whether your changes fall into Permitted Development or they fall into the requirement for full householder planning permission, having detailed plans is an essential requirement. 

These plans form an integral part of your your planning / permitted development application.

Not only are they important for this part of the process, but plans also help to visualise the ideas that you have for your extension and what you want it to look like. 

They are an awesome way of allowing others to see how you visualise your new home.  They also allow you to show your builders exactly what it is that you hope to achieve with your build.

What Do Planning Drawings Need To Show?

As a bare minimum a typical set of planning drawings for a domestic extension or alteration would need to include all of the following to get past planning validation checks and for the scheme to be considered by planning:

Existing Elevations @ 1:50 or 1:100 Scale

Existing Floor Plans @ 1:50 or 1:100 Scale

Existing Roof Plan @1:100 Scale

Existing Site Location Plan @ 1:1250 Scale

Proposed Elevations @ 1:50 Scale

Proposed Floor Plans @ 1:50 Scale

Proposed Roof Plans @ 1:50 Scale

Proposed Block Site Plan @ 1:50 Scale

Things often also requested but not always:

Off Street Parking Block Plan

Details of Vehicular Crossovers

Any rights of way over yours/adjoining owners land(s)

Floor Levels for Flood Assessment

Locations of Trees – especially any with TPOs

Neighbours Windows together with 60 degree horizontal sight lines

Neighbours Windows with 45 degree vertical sight lines

What Does A Set Of Planning Permission Drawings Look Like?

Below you will see various examples of planning permission drawings all created professionally by our experienced team.

For a planning application to be approved it will first go through a validation check with your local authority planning department.

During the validation checks a planning officer will look at the planning permission drawings submitted into them and check that they are drawn to the correct level of detail and to the appropriate scale required. 

In the examples below you will see that the existing elevations and floor plans are all clearly drawn to a scale of 1:100 and that the proposed floor plans and elevations are drawn to a larger scale of 1:50 as the level of detail needs to be clearer. 

How Do I Turn My Ideas Into A Set Of Planning Permission Drawings?
