Services / surveys for a full planning application

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give any advice on the type of services / surveys i am going to likely need to submit a full planning application?

 

So far my list is,

 

  • Arboriculturist - tree survey and tree protection plan, with constraints map to give to architect.
  • Land survey - provide detailed levels of the site to input (3D dwg) to architect
  • Structural engineer to design some fairly large retaining walls
  • Architect - design the house, site and produce D&A statement for planning

 

Anything else that i need to be considering / budgeting for?

Bats. If there is the slightest hint of any in your area you may well need an ecologist or bat survey.

Flood risk

rainwater mitigation measures. SUDS

landscape plan

ecology

light pollution. 

 

All this is obviously site specific, but these are just a few of the hoops we had to jump through.

Archaeologist (got one at the moment with that requirement)

Sometimes you might need soil samples, for contaminated land

Have also had the requirement recently to have a soakaway sized for a septic tank before planning would validate the application!!

Thanks, there are some in there that i hadn't thought of but may need to consider (or may be not).

After we had done all of ours I did wonder if we had done nothing if I would have gone through but with a big pile of conditions.

For our planning application nine years ago we didn't carry out any surveys and weren't asked to do any but we still had a long list of conditions.
