Planning permission help in France

Are you stuck in a rut with planning for your renovation or building project? Have you come across a problem or are you simply overwhelmed with other responsibilities that stop you from ploughing ahead?

I may be able to help you!

I have a good grounding in the French planning system, gathered over the past three years during which I have obtained planning permission for many clients.

In 2013 I took on my first professional clients, who were so busy they simply couldn’t find time to pick up their planning application again after it stalled when the DDT requested more details. I took their basic floor plan sketches and their first application documents away with me and then developed a full set of plans from their dimensions, as well all other supporting documentation. I also visited the CAUE on their behalf and got architectural advice on their plans. A few weeks later, I went with my client to the local Mairie and handed in the paperwork – and a month later the planning permission landed on their doormat. Simple!

The clients were very happy with the service. You can read their testimonial and others here.

I have since obtained planning permission in France for many more clients and would be delighted to hear from you if you have a project you would like to discuss.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for an initial discussion. I will always be honest about whether I can help you or whether you require an architect or a legal adviser for your project.
