Building regulation approval can be obtained through either a full plans application or a building notice application.

Arcline Architecture would typically recommend a 'full plans'approach as this requires that full details, including drawings and specifications of the proposed building
works are approved for the builder to construct from, prior to the works commencing.

A ‘building notice’ relies on the works being approved as they are carried out; this process leaves the client at risk for remedial costs if they are not constructed to the relevant regulations by their builder. Also, without a detailed set of drawings to work from, the construction process is likely to give rise to disputes.

Using your Permitted Development Rights as a homeowner you can carry out certain types of building work, such as extensions, loft conversions and construction of outbuildings without the need to apply for planning permission.

Guides on what works can be performed can be found on the government link below:

Arcline Architecture would advise on the most suitable option in gaining consent; whether it be through a planning application or the permitted development route.
If your proposed scheme is eligible under your Permitted Development Rights we would always recommend obtaining a Lawful Development Certificate from your local council.

This certificate gives
you
piece of mind as it confirms that the works carried are lawful under planning control and that they meet the permitted development limitations and conditions.
