An Expert Planning Consultant

We are proud to work with an approved Planning Consultant, whose services have assisted our customers for over a decade. Both the business owner and Associate of this Chartered Professional practice are qualified in planning matters and building design. Between them, they have almost 30 years of experience working in architectural practices.

These professionals provide an in-depth understanding of English Heritage Buildings’ products, materials, and construction techniques. As a result, they’re the best team possible to offer comprehensive planning advice for your wood garage project.

Our Planning Service

Planning for any and all kinds of wooden buildings can be a daunting, complicated, and frustrating process. However, it isn’t a process you have to tackle by yourself. Our planning service can ensure the work is done on your behalf. 

The provision of our services won’t always guarantee a successful outcome first-time. But our Planning Consultants are very familiar with our timber buildings and understand the most optimum ways to present your case to your local authority. 

Their expertise is so great, they’ve even achieved a success rate of 95% on first-time applications. This gives you the best chance of getting the outcome you want, even if you own a Listed Building property or are based in a Conservation Area.

Creating Custom-Size Designs

We recognise the challenges homeowners face when navigating the complexities of planning permission, while also ensuring they get the size of the garage they want. That’s why we ensure our range of carefully-designed bespoke wood garages are made to provide solutions that align with both space and planning permission requirements.

By working closely with you, we can create custom garage solutions that ensure a perfect fit for your needs and your property. With our knowledge and experience in dealing with planning permission, we can also provide guidance and support throughout the process to ensure compliance with local regulations at all times.
