Design, Planning & Building Regulations


For Oakworth Homes a design isn't something that falls out of a book or even a design already built elsewhere it is about using the space available to match the way you live or your project should be. How the space should be used is for us the best method of designing a home.


We typically see customers who either know what they want & we do all we can to provide just that with a few suggestions along the way. We also see customers who have an idea what they would like but are open to suggestions. Either way we ask for initial guidance in the form a simple line sketch of what size you believe each room should be.

We listen to your requirements & provide you with what you requested for discussion at a design review meeting. Whichever type of customer, you are it is rare that a design is final at this time & we will offer ideas & suggestions aimed to improve the flow of a property, gain more light, benefit from views or simply start looking for exciting features both inside & out that make the design match the owner. At the same time as doing all of this we are always mindful to involve local planners & where needed councillors to help ensure what we later propose meets with local approval.

Applying for planning is usually made in the form of a full application & it is our initial discussions with them that help our success rate. Usually within eight week period from application we are given an indication on the suitability of our plans followed by a formal decision. It is at this time that we can start the building regulation application process & commence the design & engineering of the timber frame structure. Throughout the process we will keep you informed of progress and agree foundation construction details, timescales & timber frame erection dates.

We have a range of designs in our portfolio that are aimed to ease any creative difficulties you may be having and serve as a thought starter for some of the nice features of design.
