A guide to attaining planning permission

A Step-by-Step Guide to planning permission for new developers

Undergoing a property development project is a very big decision and for first-time developers, it can be a daunting process to be thinking about.

That is why we have gathered information on how best to approach your project and how to apply for planning permission:

1. Researching and Purchasing Land

Before even applying for planning permission, you will need to make sure that the land is developable.

Most plots may come with planning permission, but if not, then you will have to make sure that the plot you intend to purchase is conducive to being developed upon.

Researching will also allow you to find the property development loan that works for you. Tips for buying land.

2. Planning Permission

When applying for planning permission, it is important to seek the guidance of builders, mechanical and civil engineers, environmental officers, town planners and community councils.

Here are some key considerations that planning permission applications will require:

  • How waste storage and collection will be managed during and after project completion.
  • The materials you plan to use for your development.
  • The sewage and foul water systems will be put in place.
  • Boundaries, trees, and hedges survey.
  • The impact of the development on the surrounding natural environment.

3. Construction and Contractors

Hiring contractors is an important part of any construction or development project, and as a project manager, you need to ensure their safety.

If you live in London then tradespeople such as roofers or plumbers and heating engineers should be able to access the property site easily, and there should be facilities on-site too.
