In the UK, we have increasingly found clients who are exasperated with the Planning Process. The difficulties of dealing with Planning Policy, the length of the process and the worry of it all can drive some people to despair. They often give up and sell when there is no good reason why their property cannot be improved.

In response to this, Figura has developed buildings that, in the right situation, may not need Planning Permission. Although there are restrictions on the siting and use of these buildings, our approach has provided a suitable alternative for some of our clients.
