Projects / Case Studies
Are you aware of the restrictions placed on your property or area? For instance, some areas do not allow double glazing! We highly recommend that you consult with your local planning department for any regulations placed on your property.
Because listed buildings are individual, unique and preserved, we treat them as such and require information before we can plan the work ahead. If you require replacement windows or doors for your listed building, then planning permission and approvals are required.
You will have to contact your Local Authority for this. Once planning permission is underway, we can help you with the technical drawings that the Local Authority may require.
For Conservation Areas you will also need to contact your Local Authority and advise them off the work you would like to carry out. We recommend that you do not start any work before this approval is obtained. In our experience, living in a Conservation Area is not as tightly regulated as a Listed Building but this all depends on your Local Authority.
If technical drawings are required by your Local Authority then we can assist if required.
Should you be in any doubt as to what restrictions there are on your property, always contact your listed building consent, conservation office or planning department. Guidance varies from area to area so unfortunately there are no generic contact we can give you, however you may wish to read the guidance from www.planningportal.gov.uk first.
