I have some Questions!
What are building regulations?
Building Regulations are minimum standards for design, construction and alterations to buildings in the UK. Any project you undertake must adhere to them. As a property owner or contractor, it is your responsibility to ensure that a building project meets Building Regulations so that your building is safe, structurally sound, water and energy efficient for its users, and also ensures that it is built in a way that allows access for people with disabilities.
What is Planning permission?
Planning Permission, in simple terms, is like asking your local authority council if you can do a certain piece of building work. It will be granted (possibly subject to certain conditions) or refused.
Do i need both building regulations and planning permission for my project?
Yes. In most, but not all cases, a proposed development could require both planning permission and building regulation approval. In these circumstances you would have to make two separate applications, including paying two separate fees, to have your applications considered.
Can my application be rejected?
Yes, this could be the case usually the most hard-lined reason for refusal is that the proposal fundamentally conflicts with either national or local planning policy, or both. Our Architect will advise you on whether they believe the application will be refused.
Do i have to find my own builder?
You are open to look for your own third party builder to take control of the construction of your extension, although we are connected to builders we trust and have worked with in the past. We can connect you at no extra charge.
What are the costs of each part of the process?
Here at Zidouri Architecture we like to give one price for the entire process so all will be included in one price.
