Changing a Commercial Property

Whether you’ve just bought a commercial property or your business has developed beyond the building’s original purpose, remodelling the property to suit can be a daunting prospect. It really doesn’t need to be, though. With the right help behind you, you can soon be on your way to the perfect work environment. Whether you need a change of layout, a change of use, or a complete renovation, Plans 2 Extend has you covered.


What Plans 2 Extend Can Do For You

With decades in the building trade between us, Plans 2 Extend offers a complete design and planning service that takes you from your initial idea right the way through to planning approval and beyond. These are the sort of projects we have taken on in the past:

Material Change of Use

Commercial properties fall into a variety of classes and subclasses and changing from one to the other may require planning permission from the council (this is in addition to further planning permission for building extensions, and so on). Whether permission is needed depends on the original and the intended purpose of the building. Our experienced team will be able to walk you through the various classifications and work out what category your business falls into and how best to obtain approval.

Change Layout

Your new commercial property might be in a prime location, but its layout simply isn’t fit for purpose. Whether you need to knock down some walls, build an extension, or fit a new shop front, we can draw up the appropriate plans and technical drawings for you.

Retrospective Planning

We have extensive experience helping commercial clients who have gone ahead and made changes before realising they needed the appropriate planning permission. Retrospective planning is one of our specialities, so you can rely on us to deliver results.
