Our Design Services

We believe that good design is a crucial part of the planning process. Getting the design right is an important part of the project and can certainly help in the process of achieving successful planning consent and avoiding unnecessary delay and costs.

At The Rural Planning Co, we have an in-house design team and offer creative design, from extensions to new dwellings, barn conversions, rural worker dwellings, replacement dwellings and more.

We provide bespoke solutions to meet your needs, along with 3D images of the inside and outside of the property to to help you better visualize the project.

What can you expect from our in house design service?

Our design team can produce a review of the design options available to you for your development. Working side by side with our team of Planning Consultants, this allows you to get the best strategic advice and design alternatives so that you can get the most out of your project.

Good planning drawings will undoubtedly increase your chances of getting planning permission. Our design team will work with our clients and planning consultants to use these to help communicate your vision to the planners. It is important that they help the planners to understand what your project will look like and how it will fit into its surroundings. They are not as detailed as Building Regulation drawings. Think of this as the first step...

Building regulation drawings go into much more detail than the planning application drawings. They are a set of detailed drawings and construction details to be submitted to the local planning control department. These can be put together after planning approval has been received.

For most projects you will need to make a building regs application. Building regulations are legal minimum standards for the design and construction of buildings.
