Mr A had applied for planning permission himself and been unsuccessful. He phoned Plan and Design Ltd to see if we could do anything for him. After our initial visit and discussions over the requirements we assured Mr A we did not need planning permission despite the garage being over 9meters by 6 meters. We decided to apply for a LDC certificate which would give Mr A a certificate to state the council has checked the plans and the development falls under Permitted development and would not require a full application. We recommended a local builder as Mr A did not have one lined up.
"I found Richard at Plan and Design to be very helpful in the design of the garage. He came up with some great ideas and was very organized from the outset. He provided the complete service, dealing with both the planning department and building control to ensure the design met all the requirements. During the build he efficiently and quickly dealt with a minor technical issue that arose and I was always comfortable that things were being handled without any worry. The resulting structure looks great and blends in well with the rest of the property."
