Householder Planning Applications

In general, all works, carried out by a homeowner to their own home, can be carried out under a Householder Planning Application. There are specific criteria to satisfy so that to do works under this type of Application. Exceptions depend on factors, such as the type of property (home or flat), location (Conservation Area) type of building (standard or Grade II Listed Building), etc.


HANZO.Design can study your case and advise if your works require planning consent. We can assist in preparation and submission of a planning application, or do it on your behalf as your Agent. Householder Application consists of the planning application forms and detailed drawings, prepared by HANZO Architects.


HANZO.Design then submits the application to the local planning authority, paying a standard application fee. Local Authorities consider a planning application within eight weeks, which is a set national in most cases. These eight weeks we will optimise the workload so that to start working on site; hence you would not be suspended for nearly two months.
For most relatively small building works, planning applications are dealt with under delegated powers, where the appointed planning officer and the planning team will assess an application. In this case, HANZO.Design will act as your Agent and follow the process on your behalf. No stress for you.


In case your project requires a more extensive or more complex application, or subject to further questions or objections against the proposal, your application may be referred to a planning committee. In this situation, HANZO.Design will continue to follow up the process until the Permission is finally acquired.
