At D.B.R. Design & Build Ltd, we are always up to date with the ever-changing planning permissions and building regulations imposed by building control. This means we can guide you through the complexities of the UK planning system, to successfully gain the planning authorisation and permissions you require from the local authority concerned. When we have received their approval, we can begin building work and manage the entire project from start to finish. We guarantee to complete your project within the agreed timeframe.

If you are looking for a design and build contractor, please contact us today.

Step by step process of planning permission:

Initial Meeting to obtain client’s requirements.
Send quote to be signed and returned.
Return to the office to complete a measured survey. (This does not take too long and requires nothing from the client besides maybe a cheeky cuppa!).
Measured survey drawn up.
Designs drawn up with multiple options if possible, including 3D photo-realistic images. We also offer 3D fly-thrus at an additional cost.

Measured survey and designs sent to client. Any changes required included in initial quote price.

If required, these drawings, along with forms and any extra information, to the local planning authority in application for a planning approval. The council require a fee for this that we will inform you of at the application stage.
Planning applications can take up to 6 – 8 weeks for a decision. This is usual for any planning authority.
Once planning has been approved, building regulations may be required. If so, we will quote again for these detailed drawings.
We will then send you the completed building regulation drawings and once confirmed, make a building regulation submission to the local authority.
Once these are approved you can start work on site. You can do this 48 hours after the submission, but this is at the client’s own risk.


Please look at a brief selection of our CAD designs, we supply full montages and fly throughs of your project.

"I was hesitant to pay the asking price for this service as I was struggling a bit to justify it, but when I spoke to them they offered interim payment options and ever better than that, the guys I was fortunate enough to speak to Andy and also have had the opportunity to meet Carl, were so helpful and have actually been the main factor in us making the changes to our business to be more professional, efficient, organised and profitable. The various reports and breakdowns means that we have a schedule of works and BOQ along with H&S forms and contracts, so everything runs much more smoothly and we know where we stand and what we’re making/going to make in our project. Thanks a lot guys!”


“Hi Clare, The chaps have done a really grand job of fitting the work surfaces and kitchen. Thank you so much for organising that for us. It looks good and they cleared up marvellously well afterwards. You said they were top builders and you were right. What is the actual name as I’d like to mention how good they are in the next newsletter? I hope to see you next Thursday at the AGM – one or two have cried off already! Many thanks again Clare. Greatly appreciate it.”


“Carl Many thanks - the roof and timbers are taking shape now and we can now see how some of the rooms are panning out - the guys work really well and the finish of their cuts of the roof timber is excellent. Looking forward to the rest of the timber arriving tomorrow - I bet you are as well.”

Regards Mrs. P.

“Dear Sirs With reference to the job recently carried out by DBR. on my front porch and garage, I would like to commend you on the quality and speediness of the work rendered. Your carpenter, Richard, was professional and helpful. I was kept informed of his progress and the stages of the work, always. and he did a thorough job in tidying up the place daily. I have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others requiring building work.”

Your sincerely, Dr. Y Wong

"To all at DBR, We’d like to thank the DBR team for the excellent building work that has transformed our now beautiful home. Throughout the whole process your input suggestion and willingness to help has significantly enhanced the finished project. You went above and beyond the original extension and design brief, we’re particularly impressed with the way you optimized the plant hire and ground workers to incorporate a new parking area and fantastic sandstone terrace. In addition, most callers to the house, including complete strangers, offer positive comments (unprompted) about the property and design that we fortunately took your advice on. Thank you all once again."

Regards Simon & Victoria

"Brilliant results really saved a lot of time. I've tried other consultation companies and DBR Group are by far the best solution for procurement and project management.”

Mr H Gannt, planning, design and cost consultancy, Wembley London

"Great service and work ethic and saves a lot of time pricing jobs once you are up to speed with the business model these guys use. The customer support from Carl and his team is second to none and has been great, would recommend this service to anyone that prices a lot of jobs and carries out new and commercial builds.”

Mr. Urquhar
