Introduction & Survey

The design and planning process begins with meetings to discuss the client's requirements and design. A measured survey of the site and existing buildings and landscape features on the land/plot will be undertaken and drawn up as a CAD drawing.

Proposals & Submission

Proposals will be drawn and costed, these drawings are then submitted to the client for feedback. Once a scheme has been approved by the client this is submitted to the local authority with all required accompanying information for approval. Discussions between the planning authority will often bring about alterations to scale and design. Clients will be kept informed about these negotiations.

Planning Approval

If the scheme is approved and permission given clients will often instruct Vernacular Homes to provide the more detailed elements of design which are required for the conditions attached to a planning or listed building approval.

Many clients using our planning services go on to build their approved schemes with Vernacular Homes.
