      I have an old house with on a site split on 2 sides of the road. The house & garden on one side and an old Stables/loft & sty building across the road.

      Tis my intention to convert, extend & improve the stables building to make it a residence.

      How do i start? Do i need an architect first? Get PP first? Is it the architect who gets the PP?
      I havent got a clue, but dont wish to spend a packet on a design plan if i wont get the PP etc………

      thanks in advance

      firstly, talk to a few architects in the area familar with planning in your county and familar with renovation works.

      Explain your brief in full (ie what you want to end up with) and what stage you want them tpo cary work to
      planning, tender or competion….
      Ask for quotations with detailed breakdowns to do this work… and examine quotations on receipt.
      Engage the architect.
      The architect will arrange a site survey and provide you with sketch design proposals.
      Have a pre-planning meeting in the council to se how the development will be viewed by the planners.
      If you get a positive reaction the fire ahead…

      What is the status of the road dividing this site?. Unless it is a minor road, local authority not keen for more road entrances. Most County Plans prohibt or discourage new houses fronting onto Regional and National Roads.

      Its a minor road, and the field with the stables already has an entrance.
      I think my issue is that the field is not quite half an acre which i am told is the minimum for a site, though not sure of the case in Change of use.

      Thanks for the advice henno. I am having a estate agent & a planner/architect come see it.
