Planning Applications (England & Wales):

A planning application is submitted to the local planning authority. The planning authority publicises the application, in the newspaper and perhaps elsewhere. The public has a few weeks to comment on the application. A decision is made on the application, usually within eight weeks of it being submitted.

That’s the short answer, but what about plans being drawn up, Building Control, and for leaseholders Landlord Consent.  Depending on your property type, ownership details (shared/lease etc.) there will be additional requirements.  

We can manage the whole process for you to ensure that your works are recorded and licensed to ensure compliancy so if you ever decide to sell, there will be no delays on trying to get licenses, awards etc. retrospectively or having to demolish or alter works you have paid to have completed.
