Planning Drawings

Whether you are completing building works under permitted development or applying for planning permission, this stage will produce all the necessary drawings and documentation to move on to the final stage. These are drawings that are prepared for submission to Local Authority for a Planning Application. These usually contain existing and proposed layouts, elevations, block and site plans and an Ordnance Survey plan (see planning drawing examples below). Applications for new dwellings, conservation areas etc also require a Planning Support Statement, which we provide within the agreement.


What Should I Expect?

This depends on the type of project and which section of the Planning Laws that it falls under.

This is usually either Permitted Development, where planning permission is not specifically required. Or Planning Approval where planning permission needs to be sought before any construction work can start.

Permitted Development often requires confirmation by the Local Authority but almost always requires Building Regulation approval.

Planning Permission requires an application to Local Authority which usually takes 8 – 10 weeks after submission for a decision (be it an approval or refusal). Again, successful planning application requires building regulation approval.

Client Testimonials

I have been complimented on numerous occasions about the build and how it blends in with the original house. This is a direct reflection on the work of Wright and Ruffell. Once again, many thanks for your assistance, time and continued support.

‘Quality and professionalism through all stages: initial consultation and guidance, design and refinement, build and construct and, not forgetting the important clean-up. Top job!’

Our Portfolio

Our portfolio shows a select few of our projects that we feel give a good idea of the type of projects we take on and the quality we deliver for our clients.

It wouldn’t be practical for us to show every single project, so if there is something that you would like to see but cannot find, let us know and we’ll be happy to send you some examples.
