XL Planning & Design

First and foremost, we aim to listen and understand your ideas so we can help you achieve your desired outcome. Most development ideas are achievable and we will work with your Local Authority’s Planning Department as best we can to get your design approved.

We’ll take care of all the practicalities, drawing up the design with our experienced architectural (CAD) designer, getting all the relevant approvals (planning permission, building regulations) in place so you are ready to go.

We’ll ensure the planning process is completed with the minimum of fuss, as quickly as possible, while still taking into account the inevitable changes to the original plans whether by the Council or yourself. Flexibility is key because with the best will in the world there’s always something you haven’t thought of, some details that only become apparent once the job’s underway.

And that’s where our experience comes in our ability to deal with the unexpected, our knowledge of how to put things right.

AGRICULTURAL

AGRICULTURAL

One of the fundamental advantages of be being based in Mid Devon is that the vast majority of the planning work we carry out is based in rural areas, that are often outside of settlement boundaries. Planning policies tend to be more restrictive in these sorts of locations. 

INDUSTRIAL

INDUSTRIAL

Building a new industrial unit or making changes to an industrial site can be a great way to maximise space for your business, and here at XL Planning we have successfully handled plenty of these sorts of applications, whether it’s the erection of a new industrial building, or the erection of an extension to an existing building.

SOLAR

SOLAR

Over the past few years we have found ourselves handling several large planning applications for solar-farm projects.

Surveys

SURVEYS

ENFORCEMENT

Enforcement

HOUSEHOLDER

Householder

Planning applications for housing in some instances can be fairly simple, but in others can be very complicated. Several factors need to be assessed, such as site location, design and density issues, through to the local housing market, affordable housing.

We’re a step above the rest as when it comes to needing assistance with enforcement issues, as Glenn Crocker has 8 years of experience working as an enforcement officer at Mid Devon District Council. 

Where surveys are required, we do offer a project management service, so you can leave all of the organisation to us, we’ll use our trusted contacts to produce the necessary survey work, and lease with the local authorities to make sure all of their criteria is met.

BARN CONVERSIONS

Barn Conversions

The most common applications we deal with currently are prior notification applications for the change of use of agricultural buildings (or barns) to dwellings. This is due to a new piece of planning legislation that was introduced on 6th April 2014. The legislation gives the ability to convert existing agricultural buildings in dwellings. There are however restrictions and conditions to the legislation, including maximum size and the potential need for surveys to be undertaken as well the submission of a prior approval application to the Local Planning Authority.
