Home extension designs Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury & surrounding areas. We are fully qualified architects and can take care of everything for you, without the massive costs.
Here’s a brief description of the process and timetable.
We will attend a meeting with you for a general discussion about your ideas and requirements:
We can help with all the above and more. Please send us an email or call, we can normally visit within a week.
This will normally happen within 2 to 3 weeks of the ‘Meet & brief’.*
We will arrange a meeting with you and go over your changes with some sketch details. This may include a few options.
This will normally happen within 2 to 4 weeks after the ‘Measured survey’.*
Ready to submit to the local authority.
PSK will submit this on your behalf. This will normally happen within 2 to 3 weeks of ‘Proposals, adjustments and changes’.*
The planning is being reviewed by the nominated case officer.
Your application will go for a 21 day consultation.
Be reassured PSK will always share the feedback with you and provide you with options towards any comments from any of the consultants and/or neighbours regarding your application.
After the consultation is over we will be in the queue for the case officer to give their own opinion and feedback. They may ask questions about the design in general. PSK will do their up-most to get your dream project passed and your application approved.
This will normally happen within 8 to 12 weeks, once validated.*
*For most planning applications, (e.g. extensions), from the first meeting to a successful application, the process can take 12 to 16 weeks.
*Permitted development (PD) can be done in 8 to 10 weeks, as Step 5 is shorter by 2 to 4 weeks. Some properties may not have PD rights. We will always advise to submit full planning.
*New houses can be more complicated and sometimes require other items that extensions might not need, such as; drainage strategy, levels drawings and landscaping details. The overall process normally takes 20 to 24 weeks
The earlier you instruct PSK to start, the sooner you will have your dream design
Whichever type of planning application you need, please call PSK on 01452 714596.
All the information in this booklet is a general guide and provides you with a time scale to aim for.
*Some planning applications can be done in 10 to 12 weeks, whilst others can take much longer because of many situations surrounding a particular property or scheme. **Items can carry fees that will be chargeable. We do not bind ourselves to any of the timescales presented within this paper.

I would have no hesitation in recommending PSK Architects to anyone looking to build an extension or a house. The attention to detail and interpretation of one's requirements is exemplary. I am extremely happy with the results of PSK Architects work.

Excellent service and value for money. I would thoroughly recommend using PSK Architects. Throughout the difficult and long planning process they were helpful and supportive throughout. Our project was grant funded and PSK also help us through this process.

Expert personalised advice. I’ve used Paul for 3 projects now ranging from small to larger extensions and have found him to give the kind of dedicated service that you don’t get from larger firms I have had experience of. Will continue to recommend him to friends if mine as I have done in the past
