Looking for some guidance here and would appreciate any advice.
We are looking at purchasing a plot that has full planning approval along with construction drawings and building regs. The issue we have is that the proposed house is 300m2 and my Wife and I think that not only is it too big for the plot, but also not of a style that we really like.
We would like to put a contemporary designed house onto the plot and cut the size down to 250m2
The plot sits in a conservation area and there are a handful of very contemporary houses in the area, so they are not against the idea.
I just spoke with the architect who did the drawings in an attempt to get an idea of costings for a new application and he came back with
Planning application – £8750
Building Regs – £5000
Construction drawings – £3750
I must admit that I nearly fell off my chair, but I wanted to ask what people thought about these figures and whether that is about right for a 250m2 property
