July Online Surgery: Planning Permission

An important (and often stressful) part of any self build project is gaining planning permission.

During this online session designed specifically for self-builders at early stages, independent planning expert, Mark Doodes, hosted a 45 minute presentation with a live Q&A session and an exclusive follow-up access to answer your planning queries. Mark discussed the complexities of the planning system, offering his expert advice on how you can best prepare a successful application and avoid costly pit-falls.


Mark is a qualified, chartered and insured Town Planner with 15+ 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 surgery is designed to ensure you are not wasting time, effort and capital on sites or strategies that are unlikely to be fruitful.
