Drawing and Planning

Helping you navigate the jargon and legislation to achieve planning permission.

Drawing and Planning is a leading residential and commercial planning consultancy covering London and beyond. Its team of architects, town planners and engineers can advise on all matters relating to planning applications, whether it's a loft conversion, garage, new build and developments, as well as applications for change of use.

PLANNING APPLICATIONS

The company was founded in 2009 by Jeremy Stein with the aim that every home owner understands their development rights and how to go about gaining planning consent. The consultancy only takes on projects that they believe will get permission, ensuring that the whole process is simple, cost effective and provides a positive experience. Working closely with local authorities and town planners, the consultancy draws up plans that meet such planning restrictions. You can check the consultancy's success rate by borough, inputting relevant postcodes to your area.

If you're unclear as to whether you need planning permission for an extension, check out the articles on common household projects which will help you navigate through the jargon and legislation. First off, you can ask for a free feasibility assessment on a particular project.

Drawing and Planning has broken down the process into four stages, showing the path from a feasibility study, site survey, the all important planning drawings and final application submission. The fixed price planning packages handle planning applications from start to finish.

RETROSPECTIVE PLANNING PERMISSION

Drawing and Planning can help should you receive a letter from your local council planning office requesting that you seek retrospective planning permission. You may have recently moved and find that the relevant permission was not sought for a change at your property and should this happen, it makes sense to go straight to the professionals who can handle this kind of retrospective permission.

COMMERCIAL

Drawing and Planning also advises individuals and developers, with a track record in delivering development and regeneration projects in London. Its clients include amongst others, Sainsbury's and London School of Business.
