The Government has announced that there will be an increase in the planning fees by 20%. The new fees will come into effect on 17 January 2018.
The new regulations also allow local authorities to charge a planning application fee where permitted development rights have been withdrawn. Such applications are currently free but will now attract the appropriate fee for the application.
The increase means that the standard rate of £385 (application fee for each new dwelling) will go up to £462 and a householder planning application will increase from £172 to £206.
Whether you want to extend, convert or renovate your property, you can visit the interactive planning portal at Planning Portal.
Planning Application can sometimes be very straight forward and less costly, requiring only the Proposed Plans, Ordnance Survey and the Planning Application fee . These requirements depends upon the location where you are planning to build, in other cases the council may require further documents such as:
The drawing plans come with a Cover Page with the Specification of the residence, detailed Floor plan of each storey, showing room dimensions, partitions, windows, doors and proportional furniture blocks.
Elevations of the four sides of the house, describing materials and measurements. Roof Plan showing an overhead "bird-eye" view of the roof, with indications of the roof slope.

This is created from a 2D drawing, therefore it requires a DWG. The benefits of a 3D model is to identify any discrepancy within the Architectural or Structural design. A 3D model is highly recommended as it will help to ensure the construction phase runs smoothly. The model will be delivered in DWF file and it requires the Autodesk Design Review which can be downloaded for free from the Autodesk website itself.
This is the next and last stage after a 3D model is created, when material texture, light effect and background environment are assigned to the model and then the renderings are produced. "Unfortunately we can not guarantee the material texture accuracy", but we can guarantee high quality photorealistic images.
The images are delivered in either JPG and PDF files.
