Developing a site for affordable housing or have a planning gain obligation under a Section 106?

We can help ensure your drawings meet the affordable housing requirements.

Contact us today to arrange your audit.


Send us either a copy of the Section 106 and Planning Decision Notice or draft documents/expected standards alongside your drawings in PDF to include a site plan and house/flat type general arrangements and elevations.


One of our experienced team will undertake a full compliance check which will include not only the standards required by planning but also commentary on design/cost efficiency and likely expectations of the Housing Association and end user.


We will give you the opportunity to respond to our initial report and then, once matters have been addressed, produce a Certificate of Design Standards. This can often be used to support a planning application or discharge your obligations where third party confirmation is stipulated by the Local Authority.


Need more? We can offer full working drawing audits, on-site inspection of completed construction and Certificates of Construction Standards as independent verification of compliance. Contact us for a competitive fee quote.
