Planning Drawings & Building Regulations Plans
If you have even a vague idea of what you want to build and can get your existing room measurements to us, then our planning drawing service is definitely for you.
Extension Plans and Elevation Drawings
Whether it’s single storey kitchen extension drawings, two storey extension drawings or all of the above at once, we’ll have your online plans ready in a flash.
Maybe you fancy a new open-plan kitchen/diner, or maybe a couple of new bedrooms upstairs? Lots of house extensions don’t require Planning Permission these days but many still do. Even if your extension plans fall under ‘Permitted Development’, it is still extremely likely that you will need some form of Architectural Drawings. We are absolute experts in providing cheap extension plans online for planning permission or a Lawful Development Certificate.

Extension Planning Drawings / Permitted Development Drawings
You can check the UK Government guide HERE to see if your extension plans are likely to need Planning Permission. Even if your extension is considered Permitted Development (i.e. doesn’t need Planning Permission), it is still a good idea to get a Lawful Development Certificate. This is basically just written confirmation from your Local Authority that you can build without Extension Planning Permission and definitely aren’t breaking any rules! The Lawful Development Certificate will also come in handy when you eventually come to sell your home. The Lawful Development Certificate Application requires extension drawings of the exact type you would normally use for a Planning Application.
Extension Building Regulations Drawings
Your extension will almost definitely need Building Regulations Approval by either your Local Authority or an Approved Inspector. You can do this one of two ways;
1) A Building Notice
This is just a form that states you are building an extension and it enables the inspectors to quote your fees and tells them to expect to carry out some site visits soon. There are no extension building regulations drawings produced with this option and you or your builder can submit the Building Notice.
2) Full Plans Application
This is the one we would recommend as Architectural Building Regulations Drawings are produced by us and are pre-checked by the Building Control Officer before building work starts. This means you can be entirely confident that you will not be building anything non-compliant and have to make costly corrections. The extension building regulations drawings we produce include all the relevant detailed section drawings, a specification and all relevant building notes to get you Full Plans Building Control Approval. Your builder will also have nice detailed extension plans to work from, further reducing the risk of mistakes on site.
We are planning and building regulations experts. Your online plans will be ready FAST.
How Do I Get Started?
1. Get Your Price
Click ‘Get Started” and we’ll ask you a few simple questions about your building project. Just enough to give you an instant price for the Architectural drawings.
2. Upload Photographs and Measurements
Next, you can tell us more about your proposed design ideas and also upload some photographs of your house and some measured floor plan sketches/previous Architects drawings/neighbours drawings. Using these we can draw up what your property currently looks like and then show your extension or loft conversion etc. as an addition. If it is an entirely new dwelling then you can just provide the site address and any proposed sketch ideas you may have.
3. Sit Tight (but not for long)
Once you have clicked submit, you will automatically enter our work schedule and we will get started producing your drawings. If at this stage we require any further information, we will send you an email. Your drawings will be completed within the time-frame you requested and they will be emailed to you for checking. Once you are 100% happy with the plans, we will send you a payment request for the remainder of your balance. Once this is paid, we will submit your Planning/Building Regulations Application for free! (if required). Once submitted, we will send you instructions on how to pay your application fee directly to the Council.
