The site survey or topographical survey is one of the most important pieces of information you can have to begin the design and planning process. It is a vital plan showing accurate dimensions, levels and details of your proposed site and the land and buildings in the immediate vicinity.
The topographical survey will help us to ensure that in the early stages of designing your new home, we maximise the whole of the site. Access to the new plot and how any adjacent gardens will be used can also be shown on the plans.
We are able to show the relationship between your proposed house and any immediate houses and therefore demonstrate that we have considered any impact or over -looking issues.
Once the planning process is complete we also use the survey to show drainage runs, landscaping details, drives, paths, patios, existing and proposed levels.
One of the great advantages of instructing a site survey is the ability to demonstrate how your proposed building will sit within adjacent buildings. Applications are won and lost on the amount of detail presented to the planners and public. Attention to detail and consideration to the surroundings is paramount.
A good quality survey will cost in the region of £1,000 and will be available in CAD drawing files and paper copies. It is vital that you have as much information as possible to hand when applying for planning permission and a site survey will ensure that you have it.
