Frequently asked questions

Following are the answers to some of the frequently asked questions..

Do I need planning permission?

No, not necessarily. The need of planning permission is completely dependant on the work that need to be done. Under council regulation extension, lofts or other building work can be done under Building Control with going through the lenghty planning permission process.. For full details please visit Planning Portal or Alternatively, you can speak to your local council or a member of Sandhay Constructions Ltd for further information.

Do I need plans/architect drawings?

The need for plans depends on what work is being done. For small projects such as porch or internal reconfiguration, plans are not needed but it is always a good idea to have the plans as it provides you with a clear picture of what is going to happen. For bigger projects such lofts and extensions, you will need plans/drawings and they will need to be submitted to your local council council before the building work can begin. Sandhay Constructions Ltd. has architects and engineers that can prepare the plans and/or structural calculations for you.
