Avoiding the frustrations of planning permission with a good architect

Having worked on numerous property projects over the past few years, it seems that getting projects through planning permission never becomes any easier, particularly if you go down the route of DIY planning. Myself, my partner and many friends often share the frustration and endless stress that comes with any large or small scale projects that requires planning permission. Particularly when you're dealing with planners who only see things so 'literally'. I have endless frustration when working on projects that should go smoothly but planning authorities always seem to delay the process for really petty reasons. I have used various architects in the past and can name a handful of excellent architects. On our most recent development for a mid terrace loft conversion we have been using architecture direct. They helped us get through a larger project we completed last August for a house of ours to be split into two single dwellings. They are a breath of fresh air in terms of the customer service you receive. They had the plans completed for us within 3 days of completing the survey and we're now just awaiting a decision. The team is extremely lovely and helpful and their prices are very competitive. The nice thing is that they actually keep you updated on progress through weekly emails or phone calls which I've never had from other companies. I recommend getting their advice at the very least!
