April Online Surgery: Self Build Planning


The planning system is a complex and growing area; take expert advice upfront.

In this session, we discussed the planning system, how you can best prepare a successful application and costly pit-falls to avoid.

This online session was designed specifically for self-builders at early stages and was delivered by independent planning expert Mark Doodes. The surgery featured a 45 minute presentation, followed by a live Q&A session with exclusive follow-up access to ensure our virtual visitor's questions were answered. This was a private session, with a small charge of £4.99 per device - so if you'd like to have access to this recording, please email for further information.


Mark is a qualified, chartered and insured Town Planner with 20+ years experience in preparing and assessing planning applications. His practice is part of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) consultants register and their role is to give you impartial advice throughout the process. Without planning permission your project hasn’t started, and this session is designed to ensure you are not wasting time, effort and capital on sites or strategies that are unlikely to be fruitful.
