About CPA Design

During the past 20+ Years I have either been employed in an Architect's practice or a Planning Consultancy. Since 2012 I have been successfully self-employed, providing Architectural Design and Planning services to hundreds of Residential and Commercial clients.


I provide architectural design for new build, extensions and any other project that requires technical proposal drawings leading to and including a planning application submission. I can either create a suitable design or work from a client brief. I dedicate myself to producing architectural designs that provide both aesthetic appeal and function for residents, commercial owners, self-builders and developers. Architecture is personal, an individuals perspective on the world surrounding them is unique, CPA Planning Design respects this and aims to provide guidance without suppressing your inspiration.


Most individuals, regardless of what they’re buying, like to see it first. That’s why CPA Planning Design has begun to offer the service of 3D Visualisations, also known as virtual models. By creating your proposed build, whether it’s a small extension, a New Build or even a small estate, it can be created before one brick is laid upon the site. This allows you to see it as it will look, and make changes before any sort of physical work has been done - potentially saving money and time, whichever may be of importance to you.


Among the services available from CPA Planning Design is professional Floor Plan survey and drawings for any sized property. These are provided in the any image format and are suitable for both print and web usage. In the Sales sector, time is of the essence and drawings can be made ready within 2 days and where necessary, within 24 hours of the survey.

Clients only deal with one contact at CPA Planning Design, from start to finish.


I can provide these at minimal cost, at any scale on any media size, either a hard copy version (up to A0) or a PDF version emailed to you and printed by your local printing outlet. Please note, there are additional costs for adding colour, defining areas, etc. but all quotes are price fixed once agreed.


This may sound like a technical term but another way of describing it is ‘tracing’. Vectorising is taking hand drawn plans (in ‘raster’ format, as in small dots of colour) and creating digital versions using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software.

The benefits will depend upon the application, for instance if there are long term alterations to a building, drawing costs are saved once vectorised. There are relatively few individuals drawing by hand since the introduction of CAD packages in the 1980′s, despite this there are still the ‘traditionalists’ and I am able to help regardless of original media size, up to A0 (841mm × 1189mm).
