Greg Laye Ltd. is an Eastbourne based architectural, planning and engineering consultancy offering advice and service on concept design, planning, building regulations applications, tender preparation and letting, contract supervision, and all aspects of building construction.
New buildings will require Planning Consent, as will most changes of use of premises. Many other projects, extensions, loft conversions, garage conversions and often conservatories, will also need planning consent.
Most projects will also require approval under the Building Regulations, which are concerned about the integrity, durability and usability of buildings. Increasingly, the government is keen to promote the use of sustainable developments and require that proper account is taken of such factors as noise insulation between dwellings, acceptability under the Disability Discrimination Act and thermal efficiency (insulation and boiler efficiency). There remain the traditional aspects of control for structural stability, weather tightness and all other aspects of construction.
