Embarking on your dream self-build project?

We can work alongside your architect, builder and other trades to ensure your vision – every fine detail of it – becomes a reality.
Step 2: outline planning permission
This type of planning permission requires fewer details submitted than with full planning permission. Outline planning permission looks at the general principles of how a site can be developed. This might be an option for extensive builds for which you’d like to get an idea of whether the proposed development may be approved before ploughing funds into building out intricate designs. Alternatively, you may be buying land to sell on – this would require outline planning permission.
Once outline planning permission is granted, a ‘reserved matters’ application, which goes into further detail, must be submitted within the next three years.
