Need planning permission & building regulations help for your project in London?

Bischell gets 97% of planning and building applications accepted first time around. Here’s 5 key reasons why:

1). We know the planning process inside-out

Choose Bischell and you have a design and build company on your side which knows just as much about planning laws as your local authority does. We know exactly how they work, what your local authority wants to see and what they are likely to accept or reject.

2). Detailed plans designed to get your project approved

We know what your local authority and building control expect, so you get clear and concise plans with articulated justifications for the project to maximise the chance of approval.

3). Persistence pays

If we believe that your application should be accepted, we will fight for your project every step of the way and use every appeal process available to gain planning approval.

4). Bischell has handled thousands of successful planning applications for clients throughout London

This means that we know the ins and outs of policy frameworks provided by the Unitary Development Plan (UDP). We can also look at previous victories to draw upon precedents which can be used to justify your proposal.


5). Use our design and build innovation to get your favourite ideas accepted

If a feature within your project is rejected, we can put our creative minds to work to try and come up with an alternative method of construction which achieves the same aesthetic result, so you have a higher chance of getting planning approval for your most favourite ideas.

Our main focus: to get your application accepted with the ideas you want the most

It isn’t just about getting approval whatever the cost – it’s about getting approval for plans which still keep all of your favourite designs, ideas and themes intact wherever possible.

We can act on your behalf – just leave everything to Bischell

Planning permission has never been easier with Bischell. We act as your agent to create all of the plans, drawings and paperwork before submitting them to building control and your local authority. We then act on your behalf throughout the process, including the submission of any amendments or additional plans required, and do everything we can to try and get your proposals accepted first-time.

If you aren’t sure about what types of permission you need or how to apply for them, you can leave that to us as well, as we work for your best interests whilst keeping you in control every step of the way.
