House Extensions Nantwich: The Process
Is your home suitable?
After booking in for a survey, I’ll come and inspect your house to take measurements and photos before continuing with planning your house extension. Access to your property and garden is needed.
We'll show you what it'll look like.
Next, I’ll draw up sketches and create a 3d model of your new house extension. It’ll show you how it’ll look and how much space is left. More than one option may be produced at this point if you’re not happy.
Asking for approval.
Once you’re completely satisfied with the sketches, I’ll submit them to the council for planning permission, or if it can be carried out using permitted development rights, I’ll submit them to the council for a Lawful Development Certificate.
