The Process

From the initial conversation to the receipt of the keys to your wonderful new home, Heritage will professionally manage the entire process on your behalf, allowing you to be involved as much or as little as you desire.

Our personal and adaptable approach can be tailored to suit your needs, whether that is maximising the value of your asset through commercially-conscious development or delivering your dream family home.  

Land Purchase and Design

We are experts at realising the potential value of a site and exploiting all of the opportunities that it presents. As part of our commitment to our clients, we will offer our knowledge and experience to aid the acquisition of the land, if necessary. For existing land or homeowners, we can offer our professional creativity and commercial acumen to produce designs of distinction and architectural merit, both of which are synonymous with the Heritage brand.

After the agreement of terms, we can arrange and facilitate a full suite of surveys and investigations that will be required for the planning application to the Local Authority, identifying the key features that will inform the design.

The formation of the design brief will extract vital information about the client’s aspirations; required accommodation, aesthetic styles, budgetary considerations, specific design criteria and the potential end use, to name but a few. From this information we can create outline sketch proposals to initiate more purposeful discussions, although we have an unerring ability of interpreting our client’s vision from a very early stage. The later amendments continue to refine and perfect the design. 

With the design finalised, we would submit the planning application to the Local Authority. Depending on the location of the property, we would also submit the required information the Residents’ Association for their approval. The application process would take somewhere in the region of eight to ten weeks.
