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 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?
- Site location plan
- Site layout plan
- Floor plans
- Existing and proposed site sections and finished floor/site levels
- Street scene or context plan
- Roof plans
- 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.
