The daunting task of how to seek planning approval in England is a costly and thankless challenge. To do the same in a foreign country with rules that seem alien and without a decent grasp on the language, we were almost resigned to our dream home remaining exactly as we bought it – tired and barely habitable. Until we were introduced to Helen Parsons of Ladybuild. Not only did she help convert our vision into a viable building project, she dealt with the entire process of getting the necessary paperwork passed and even sourced the materials. Helen has always been more than attentive to all our requirements, nothing seems to be too much trouble and everything has been handled in a refreshingly professional manner. I would happily recommend Helen for any building project.
