This depends on the size and complexity of the project. However, for most small, staightforward domestic projects we allow around 4 weeks to produce a design in close consultation with you. Once a planning application has been submitted to the local Planning Department, you ought to have a decision within two months of registration of the application. However many factors can delay this process, for example, if complex consultations are required or objections to the proposals are received by the Council.
The Building Warrant process takes a similar amount of time, approximately 4 weeks to prepare detailed construction drawings followed by an application to the local Building Standards office which can take from 4-12 weeks to process. Thereafter, the programme for progressing your project will depend on the availibility of suitable contractors to carry out the work. Once you have a contractor ready to start, most small domestic projects take around 8 to 16 weeks to complete.
