Detailed Design

Expertise and experience delivers the detail…

ELD has a wide range of experience in the preparation of detailed design drawings for both hard and soft elements that are submitted as part of a planning application, to satisfy planning conditions and gain approval for new development.

Drawings are generally produced in AutoCAD and include specifications for planting and maintenance; plant quantities; sizes of plants to be planted and density of planting as standard information required to gain planning approval. The same drawings can be used as construction drawings for implementation.

ELD has an excellent track record and good working knowledge of the planning system and Local Authority requirements.
