ARCHITECTURAL PLANNING DRAWINGS
From new-build housing to extensions and conversions, our team of architectural designers at Imperium Architecture are here to assist you in unlocking the potential of your property. Once we have gathered an idea of your design points and budget from the initial consultation, we will then embark on designing your ideal new lifestyle. Contact us to find out more.
PLANNING APPLICATION Process
Whether you are looking to build a new home or an extension, you will need to have the planning permission to do so. At Imperial Architecture, our experienced team of architectural designers can assist you with the planning application process and liaise with your local council from start to end. Please contact us to find out more regarding your specific proposal.
BUILDING REGULATION DRAWINGS
Once you have Planning Permission or a Lawful Development Certificate, you will require building regulation drawings and a structural engineers report, design, and calculations to send to building control. Building regulation drawings are much more in-depth than planning drawings as they show the construction layout and workmanship requirements. Contact us to find out more.

What We Do
ARCHITECTURAL PLANNING DRAWINGS
Planning drawings are the architectural drawings our clients have to submit as part of any planning permission application they want to make. They are an essential tool for architects and clients to communicate their vision so that planners can understand how their project fits into the landscape as a whole.
Planning Application Process
Our record of dealing with most of the south east's Local Authorities means that we have been able to obtain planning approvals for even the most demanding of projects and we particularly enjoy the challenge of working on buildings that require a sensitive design approach.
BUILDING REGULATIONS DRAWINGS
When it comes to extending a home, developing new build houses, the Building Regulations drawings are one of the most important sections of the entire process. Without detailed Building Regulations drawings, the success of your project will suffer, no matter how great the design is.

What occurs during the initial visit?
During the initial visit we will ask you questions to find out what you want to achieve discussing the options that you have along with the feasibility and implications of these options. The initial visit is designed to be an interactive session so you will be heavily involved in the process providing information about your lifestyle, your ideas and your feedback on proposed solutions. If necessary, we will then take exact measurements of your property and sketch out an existing plan of your property – this will help you visualize the proposed concept. By the end of the initial visit you should be much better informed, and in a position to move forward with your project.
What are the next steps after the initial visit?
What is planning permission?
Will I automatically be given planning permission if someone else in my street has done the same proposed works?
What is permitted development?
What are the planning rules for a listed building?
Buildings of particular architectural interest are often officially Listed and thereby protected. Making a Listed Building Consent application is similar to making a planning application – but with a few differences. The process may be handled by a conservation officer within your local planning department or might be referred to English Heritage and there is no application fee.
