Used this company for our side extension and loft conversion planning designs, really reliable, quick and friendly service. Knocking off one star as we would have liked more guidance on the design of our project possibly with an in-person survey, and not massively keen on paying everything up front, but otherwise really pleased with the results and we will be using Planning By Design for the next stage of our project

They created a very detailed report, informing us about all the possibilities and risks related to purchasing the plot of land we chose. Cooperation with Planning By Design allowed us to make an informed decision. I highly recommend it.

Hi Aneta, thank you very much for choosing Planning By Design and sharing a review of your experience, it means a lot to us. It's always disappointing when a project isn't feasible but better to find out before buying a site or paying for architect drawings or planning permission when it's unlikely to be successful. If you have any further questions or would like us to assess any further sites please do let us know.

From start to finish the whole process of gaining planning permission was stress free thanks to the services of Planning By Design. All I had to do was explain what I wanted & they did the rest. If you're thinking of doing it yourself my advice is don't!

I've used planning by design company To process my application for single story rear extension, Abigail the operation manager was great she responded to my query quickly. The Quotation was reasonable but unfortunately my application was not successful, however I still used them again to resubmit my application. I am happy to recommend this company to anyone who is planning to apply for a planning application or any services that they have.

Hi Cris, thank you very much for choosing Planning By Design and for sharing a review of your experience, it really does mean a lot to us. It's always disappointing when an application isn't approved first time but it's sometime a necessary part of the process. Nationally 1 in 3 appeals are won which means councils make a mistake at least 33% of the time when refusing an application. However, with the planning officers feedback we can revise the design or provide any additional info as required and assuming that satisfies the officer your resubmission should be approved.

This company is a complete scam. Kim and Abi provided us with a completely different story, leading us to provide our credit card details after multiple conversations. She arranged the telephone meeting to discuss precisely where and how much we can extend the house, but suddenly Michael appeared on the phone for 3 mins, asking us to repeat the same discussion we had with Kim. He then contradicted what his colleague, Kim, had promised us regarding what her company could offer, and stated that she's just an assistant whom we shouldn't trust. Then Grand/MD emailed us, claiming they had provided advice and so on. It's simply a waste of money.

Whilst we appreciate all feedback what you have written here is completely false. You contacted us on Feb 6th regarding a single-storey extension to replace a conservatory which you were sure would be permitted development. You already tried to do a DIY pre-app and couldn’t even manage this so you came to us when you got stuck. Kim explained that one of our chartered town planners can conduct a planning appraisal instead of a pre-app with your council, negating the need for drawings and planning statements at this stage. You requested an invoice and paid this so that we could book you in for a planning appraisal to assess the feasibility of your extension and whether it could be permitted development. Michael your RTPI certified Town Planner then called you at the agreed time having already spent over an hour checking the applicable local and national planning policies, relevant planning history and planning constraints at the site address. When Michael called you didn’t want to discuss and extension and instead started feeling inspired and asking about 4 or 5 other projects which you had not mentioned or paid for. Additionally we had not done the research on the additional items so could not give you any accurate advise on these. You wanted to include all 4 or 5 project components including extensions, loft conversion, porch etc in one application. Even without having done the full research Michael advised you that if you did this your application will be refused. You hoped your extension (and everything else) would be permitted development but planning permission is required. After a 15-minute call going round in circles talking about things that were not relevant to the planning appraisal Michael had to end the call because you refused to accept or listen to the advice. You might not like the answer but you paid for a qualified town planner to give you accurate pre-planning advice which we did. It’s up to you whether you take the advice or ignore it and accept the significant risks of doing so. Following the call we sent you a detailed feasibility report which confirmed all the findings for your proposed extension including the planning policies, planning history, planning constraints and the likelihood of success. This was sent with a quote. Despite clear advice during your call with Michael and in the feasibility report you still seem to think you don’t need planning permission and that it will be fine to include everything in one application. We cautioned you again many times on this but told you if you would like a quote for everything you want, despite the risk we act on your instruction and can do this. You didn’t want a revised quote and you also didn’t have any further questions. We offered you a further planning appraisal to discuss your other ideas but you din't want this either. So it would seem that either you are disappointed that you need planning permission or you think you know better than a town planner, which is crazy bearing in mind you couldn’t even do a pre-app on your own let alone a planning application. We have sent over 100 emails trying to help you but at the end of the day you either just don’t understand or don’t like the answer, but we have given you the correct advice that you paid for. What you do with this is up to you but ignoring our advice is going to be a very costly mistake. Best case your application for everything will be refused and if you build without planning permission you will be in breach of planning law and could be forced to demolish what you build. We’ll leave you with this thought and wish you luck whatever you decide to do.

I used PBD to get retrospective approval for a change of use for an annex. Very straightforward - initial exchange of information and telephone consultation, then decided to go ahead after which they did everything through to a successful result. Stress free and very reasonable fees

We sought out 3 surveyors who tried to convince us that the works we wanted completed wasn't viable. My business partner can't across Planning by design by chance and not only were their prices competitive but they let you pay a nominal fee to assess the viability of your planned development prior to committing to their services in full. Would highly recommend!!
