Planning and design services to maximise the planning potential of every project

Trinity Rose Architecture has a highly experienced team comprising specialists from residential, commercial, leisure and rural property sectors. It’s our role to design inspired development schemes that will gain the requisite planning consents on even the most challenging of sites.

We work closely with our clients on a diverse range of sectors and buildings from individual historic properties to residential developments and complex commercial schemes. During the design and planning stage of a project we collaborate closely with local planning authorities, designers, planning consultants, third-party structural engineers and other consultants offering specialist architectural services, such as BREEAM and renewable energy consultancy to get the project across the planning line.

Our objectives are always the same: to design schemes supported with accurate detailed designs packages to facilitate the build; manage the expectations of our clients and to take account of technical compliance and LABC and NHBC obligations.

What is a lease plan?

A lease plan is a scale drawing of the buildings and associated land described in a lease. It will show areas that are shared with others and rights of way that have been granted. The lease plan must also illustrate the location of the property and have key content in order for it to be accepted by the Land Registry.
