Finished a 200m house this summer, very high spec, if heating, air to water, triple glazed, solid oak floors, for 2k per m. Also foundation had to be screw piled and some demolition, complete new build. Some of these prices quoted are crazy, don’t pay them.

Roughly 4k for a planning consultant to include :

Consultation with Client House Survey Preparation of the following drawings: • Proposed Site Layout • Existing & Proposed Floor Plans • Existing & Proposed Elevations • Proposed Contiguous Elevations • Proposed Section Planning administration including drafting of public notices, planning application forms & consolidation of reports by others Pre-validation review Hand deliver planning application to Local Authority

Am I wrong in saying a planning consultant is similar enough to an architect to satisfy that requirement?
I am looking into a reconfiguration of 4-bed semi d with a potential small extension. There is enough floor space without doing an extension but the layout needs complete reconfiguration. Do architects offer any light touch planning service? I'd like to have a few architects propose a plan so I can asses options. I am finding it hard to find online as most architects examples of work involve extensions.

One of the architects we met was patrycja@progala.ie - her focus was very much on a whole house approach using existing floor space and in our case a much smaller extension. I really liked what she had achieved with other clients and despite needing work done on a whole house basis our main focus on this occasion is to add space so she wasn't the right fit for us but could be exactly what you need. Hope that helps.
