Planning Design

It is useful to know that when considering both oak buildings and extensions, some quite generous exemptions apply under your Permitted Development (PD) rights, so you may be pleasantly surprised to find that planning permission may not be needed for your timber framed building. However, in general it is always best to consult both us and your Local Planning Authority to verify your individual circumstances. For more information on this visit the government website at or talk to your local authority.

For all other situations a planning application will be required. Oakmasters is fully equipped to offer competitive design services from outbuildings and extensions to timber framed buildings and houses. We use the latest in both 2D and 3D CAD systems and have a wealth of technical knowledge to draw from. We also have close affiliations with a number of highly respected architectural practices who work with us to provide solutions for high end projects. We can help with the creation of concept designs and then move on towards the drawings and other specifications necessary for a planning application.

We can also offer a full planning application service, including submission and monitoring of the application and making amendments in line with planning authorities' requirements, if necessary.
