• Listed Building Consent Applications
  • Planning Applications
  • Production of Building Regulation Drawings

Design Specifics Ltd will submit both Planning and Listed Building Consent applications, depending on the nature of the project. We work hard with each local authority involved so that we submit applications that stand an extremely good chance of approval.

Our experience allows us to foster an approach based on face-to-face dialogue and communication with the planning/conservation department in each case, and pre-application advice is often sought from the council (so that it can be cited within an application to therefore maximise chances of approval.)

We monitor each application during its progress through the planning system and regularly keep our clients informed.

Design Specifics Ltd has a very strong track record of planning applications and is the first company ever in Surrey to successfully obtain Listed Building Consent for replacement double glazed timber windows to a Grade II listed 15th century farmhouse. In this instance, the specialist joinery was made to our exacting detailing and installed by our own workforce.

We work closely with other specialists so that we can produce the complete package of information required to enable us to submit full drawings and calculations for Building Control. This will usually include all necessary structural calculations, heat loss calculations, constructional details, drainage, etc. This is an invaluable document that will be critical for the successful pricing running and completion of the project.
