Planning, Design, Architect

Welcome to SJF Planning & Design Service


Self-employed Architectural Draghtsman with over 30 years experience.

Thank you for visiting SJF Planning & Design. I'm Simon; if you need help with planning, design or architectural services, please get in touch. For over 30 years I've carried out work for local builders, local autorities, private developers, friends and neighbours.

I am based in between Bath, Chippenham, Bradford on Avon and Melksham, but I work accross most of the region. You can read more about how I can help you on this website, and find useful links and advice. However, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need a quote for any planning and design services.

Useful Planning Links

Here are some useful links if you're thinking about starting a project. I submit plans and applications every day on behalf of clients, so I'd be happy to chat if you need help making sense of the rules, regulations and red tape, or if you have any queries.

Simon Filipowicz - a little bit about me:

I have been working in the industry for over 30 years. As a self employed Architectural Draftsman, I provide a range of planning and design services for many clients accross the local area and the region. My clients include freinds, neighbours and local builders, as well as larger companies and organisations. By providing a fast, reliable and competatively priced service, I strive to ensure that all of my clients always come back to me whenever they are working on a new project. Thankfully I have all the equiptment I need at my home office in Broughton Gifford (a small villiage sitting between Bath, Corsham, Bradford on Avon and Melksham), so thankfully my overheads are low! Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.
