Trying to line up our builders to start as soon as we get planning permission approved. It’s a single storey kitchen extension but we are in a conservation area – hence required planning. Most of our neighbours have done something similar in our street and it’s a standard extension. In Wandsworth in London.
How long did it take to get planning permission? We submitted it 3 weeks ago so hoping it won’t take too much longer.
Do you also know if you can start any of the work before you get permission?
Our extension took 8 weeks to come back. We were lucky as it was a straightforward kitchen extension and one our neighbours had done something similar to. Whilst we were waiting though we got 4 quotes from builders so we could start quickly.
We didn’t start any of the work before hand although there may be certain things you could do…
