We cannot thank Phil enough for his personal, professional and honest support in our house extension.

We thoroughly recommend him to all.
Barn Conversion
“We applied for planning permission to convert an old agricultural building into a dwelling. The building had some historic significance so it was important that we made the most of the space whilst preserving the character. Phil came up with an innovative design that we were delighted with. He incorporated some contemporary elements key to modern living, whilst maintaining the character that conservation officer was keen to preserve. The finished designs looked great and enabled us to get a good appreciation of what the building could look like when completed”. Billy and Karen, Marple Bridge.

Extend in the Green Belt
As I work in the construction industry I am used to working with building drawings, however I found the quality of the plans from Plans & Planning to be exceptional both in clarity and detail. The service was also first class with a speedy response and details arrived on time - as promised. I’m sure the professional presentation helped with a planning application for a large extension that was beyond normal permitted development, and I have no hesitation in recommending this company to prospective clients.

As we have now successfully completed our extension project, I would just like to thank you for the quality and professional service you provided.

If you want to extend your home Plans and Planning will help you through the architectural design and planning process. We will prepare all the drawings for Planning Applications and for Building Regulations and submit the applications on your behalf. Plans and Planning is an accredited partner with Cheshire East building control.

We work with the local planning departments in and around Manchester & North Cheshire including Altrincham, Manchester, Stockport, Macclesfield, Trafford, Tameside, Warrington and surrounding towns.

If your project comes within the rules for Permitted Development we will advise and where doubt exists can apply to the planning office for a Certificate of Lawful Development.

Based in Bramhall, Cheshire we have experience  extending houses just like yours throughout Manchester and Cheshire.

Our approach is simple and cost effective – We know that most homeowners know what they want and to achieve and we offer the advice, experience and expertise needed to create a new home.

Our service will take you step by step from an initial feasibility study through to detailed construction drawings. 

We offer a personal, professional and affordable architectural service & free planning advice - just call

Feasibility – advice on what might be possible, can you have a loft conversion or room over the garage?

Planning Permission – can your project be achieved within the rules for permitted development?

The Planning Process – we can give guidance on the steps to take to achieve a successful completion, how long it may take and at what cost.

The Design Phase – from our initial survey to the final drawings for submission to the planners you are fully involved as the project takes shape from overall layout to detailed plans & new for 2010 we now provide 3d layouts so that you can better visualize your new home.

3D Drawings -  Recent Quote regarding 3d  "For those of us without the visualization skills of an architect who can easily glean proportions and a sense of spatial relationships from mere 2D floorplans and elevations, this is a godsend."

Drawings – It is important when comparing quotes to understand the types of drawings and what is included in the quote;  the following should be helpful;

Types of Drawing
Planning - minimum required for a planning application, no construction detail or sections.
Construction - Roof & Site Plan, floor plans, sections with construction detailing sufficient for a Builders Notice to building control but leaving choice of materials to the builder.
Full Plans - as construction but with full specification of all elements subject to Building Regulations and then checked by Building Control before work starts.

Our Drawings are Planning & Construction drawings with full detailing for construction
