Planning Drawings Surrey

Planning drawings are required for planning applications when you need approval for your construction project from the Local Authority. Surrey Design Studio creates planning drawings to aid your planning applications and ensure compliance with building regulations. We make it easy to obtain planning drawings in Surrey for extensions, new builds and other projects where planning permission is necessary.

Planning permission isn’t needed for all construction projects. There are some extensions, for example, that are small enough to not require planning permission. However, if planning permission is required, it’s important to have the right service to product planning drawings quickly and efficiently.

What Are Planning Drawings/Extension drawings?

Planning drawings are architectural drawings that need to be submitted to a local council to gain planning permission. Planning permission is sometimes required to build an extension or carry out home improvements, as well as to develop residential or commercial property. Planning drawings are a must for architects and their clients to communicate their plans. They are not just necessary for a planning application but can also be used to inform the construction of the project.

Planning drawings quickly present information for council planners to understand. They help them to get an overview of a construction project so that they can make a decision on its approval. Planning permission drawings are made in the early stages of design and development, which means that they don’t need to be as detailed as drawings required at later stages. One thing that the drawings need to do is provide an impression of how the work will impact on its surroundings.

What Drawings Do You Need For a Planning Application?

There are several different drawings that need to be included in a planning application. What is required may depend on the building being altered or site being built on, as well as the scope of the project. For example, alterations to a listed building require joinery drawings.

  • Site location plan
  • Site layout plan
  • Elevations
  • Floor plans
  • Existing and proposed site sections and finished floor/site levels
  • Street scene or context plan
  • Roof plans
  • Landscaping
  • Joinery drawings and details
  • Photographs and photomontages
  • 3D floor plans

Not all of these drawings will be a requirement for every project. For example, 3D floor plans are not necessarily needed, but they can be useful in the design process. Due to the range of planning drawings that need to be provided, getting professional help is best. Although it’s technically possible to produce the drawings that you need yourself, this usually doesn’t produce the best results unless it’s something that you have experience with. Our planning drawings service is available to create the drawings that you need in a timely manner, helping you to submit your planning application quickly.
