Company Profile

Claire Haigh became a Chartered Architect in 1990 and set up her own business in 2002, she was joined in 2006 full time by her husband, an experienced Architectural Designer and together they formed Claire Haigh Associates Ltd. We provide architectural plans and local authority approvals for your project. We have a wealth of experience of working on both small domestic schemes and multi million pound contracts. Your project begins with a discussion about the possibilities followed by a measured survey and feasability scheme. We will then apply for planning, lawful development certificate or prior approval followed by building regulations where appropriate. We do not work on site but if you need further assistance we can help you find Contractors, Consultants and Project Managers to monitor the contract works for you. We work on all size and types of projects from roof conversions, extensions, new houses, refurbishments, flat conversions, shop and office applications, listed buildings. We are a member of most of the local Planning Agents Forums and work across Sussex.

  1. Drawings and planning submissions for garage conversion and extension

    Very happy with Claire and the team who took me through the whole process of sketches through to final drawings and planning submissions. This being my first major house change, Claire was able to answer my many questions that I had, and dealing with planning was very easy, with Claire pointing out what I need to fill out and pay for along the way. I would certainly work with Claire again for any future projects. Thank you very much Claire!

  3. Internal 'open-plan' remodelling of residential property.

    Throughout our dealings with Claire Haigh Associates we have found both Claire and her partner to be helpful, insightful and a pleasure to work with. Through their professionalism and approach we have felt reassured and confident, as well as being kept informed, during the whole process of initial consultation, early design, survey and final design. Claire has also being forthcoming with providing additional advice and recommendations to further our project and I would recommend the services and look forward to working with Claire Haigh Associates again on future projects.

  4. Amendment of current planning permission to further extend our property

    Claire has recently helped us with amending a planning permission that had been submitted by previous owners, but wasn't quite perfect for us. Firstly I would say that of the architects that we had quote for us, Claire was the only one who charged for an initial consultation. Although this may seem off putting it was well worth the payment. I would say that Claire seemed quite quiet at our initial meeting, but that the individualised documentation and quote that she provided following that meeting was exceedingly detailed and showed that she had listened entirely to our brief. Her quote also included all relevant costs and there has been nothing hidden to pay at a later date. This was a slightly quirky project as the planning permission was still open from the late 90's due to a small portion of work having been completed so we wanted to apply for an amendment rather than brand new planning permission. Claire was very knowledgeable about local planning and what would be likely to be acceptable, and took the amendment through planning permission with no hiccoughs. Later on we had a change of heart on internal layout and Claire was quick to help and amend our plans without question. Claire has also been very contactable and responsive, often replying to e-mails within the hour and outside of the usual 9-5. Thank you Claire, we would highly recommend you.

  5. Consultation on plans to create a knock through kitchen/diner

    Initially we met with Claire during 2016 to discuss our requirements. She was always very helpful and provided exactly what we needed. She handled the local authority application for building permission - which was a slow and complicated process (because of Brighton and Hove City Council). Eventually we have ended up with a comprehensive set of architectural plans to allow us to progress with the project. Her work is very professional and her advice invaluable.

  7. Design and Plans drawn for a roof conversion, side and rear extension

    We found Claire to be very friendly and professional. From the outset she listened to our ideas and what we wanted from the project, she took all this information and turned them into our dream house. Her plans were detailed and comprehensive. She made the planning process clear and understandable for our novice level of understanding. The whole process was stress free and the builders have commented on how clear and detailed the plans are. We would recommend Claire to all of our friends.
