Our Services
Planning Permission

Whether you require Planning Permission for a small extension or full Planning Permission for a new house, the planning process can be seen as a daunting process. With our professional help we can guide you through the system and provide you with the permission that you require.

Householder Planning Applications are dealt with between 6 and 8 weeks from submission.
Full Planning Applications are dealt with between 8 and 12 weeks, depending on complexity.

Our applications are submitted on-line as part of the planning system portal, which means less paperwork and less waste. As part of this system you could monitor the progress of your application on-line 24 hours a day.

Building Control

Whether you require Building Control Approval for a small domestic extension, new house or for a retail or commercial extension, we will prepare working drawings, complete with a detailed specification and structural calculations if required.

As a member of the Building Control Partnership Scheme we can submit applications to Doncaster Building Control regardless of where the project is to be built in the country.

Feel free to contact us if you have any queries about our Building Control Service

Pre Application Advice

As a starting point, it is essential to provide you with a thorough investigation of your proposal, outlining the options and obstacles that may lay ahead.

Our experience of the planning system will save you both time and money during the whole process.

If appropiate, we will submit a Pre Application Enquiry to the Planning Department which could determine that Planning Permission is not required. This could prevent wasting time and money and secure feedback prior to submission of a formal application.

Feel free to contact us if you have any queries about our Pre Application Service.

Recommended Builders

We can recommend a number of competant builders and tradespeople that could work on your project, leaving you with peace of mind.

With 30 years of experience, we are confident that our recommended builders will ensure that your project is in safe hands.

Feel free to contact us if you have any queries about Recommended Builders.

Additional Services

Sometimes the Planning and Building Control departments will request additional supporting information such as:

  • Design and Access Statement
  • Flood Risk Assessment
  • Transport Study
  • Ecology Reports
  • Sequential Test
  • Historic Impact Assessment
  • Coal Mining Risk Assessment
  • Structural Surveys and Calculations

Via our network of specialist consultants, we can provide any or all of the above.

"Through word of mouth, CRB Drawing Services Ltd were recommended to me. From our initial meeting it was apparent that they knew what they were talking about and guided us expertly through the planning process.

They successfully obtained planning permission, and building control approval, gave us a list of recommended builders and within 10 weeks our extension was being built."

"We would not hesitate to recommend CRB Drawing Services Ltd. We all found David to be efficient and easy to deal with. The drawings are very professional and his input has been invaluable."

Paul Furniss - Bessacarr

"David has been approachable and amiable at all times. When designing a property you are always changing your mind and he has been patient and understanding to our needs and requirements. He has found us other possibilities to consider when problems have arisen.

Questions have been answered promptly and he always tried to work around our schedule for meetings. He has been punctual to meetings and returned emails and calls quickly. His professional manner has given us confidence in the work he has done.

Vicky Wilson - Bawtry

"As first time self-builders we found CRB Drawing Services invaluable in providing accurate plans that met our family's needs for our dream home. Dave Birkinshaw's experience in design created a beautiful house and a fantastic space for us, and his knowledge of planning and building regulations combined with his negotiation ability enabled us to obtain permission to actually build it.

We were incredibly impressed by the speed of turnaround and the fact that he automatically contacted contractors and other agencies on our behalf. His costs were also extremely reasonable and transparent and included making payments to planning and building and control saving us time and confusion.

His expertise and guidance has been -and still is - invaluable. We felt that we received a top class service individually tailored to our needs."
We cannot recommend Dave and CRB Drawing Services highly enough."
