About Us


Pope Plan and Build is a family business based in the Salisbury area and run by Rita and Bob Pope. We co-ordinate building projects from initial inception, through the design and planning process and finally on to the construction. Projects vary from small budget to luxury developments.

We appreciate that drawings, planning permission and builders are required frequently on an independent service basis and we are naturally pleased to oblige with that service. To understand clients’ needs and expectations within a specific budget we enjoy working closely with them, achieving a satisfactory conclusion to works undertaken.

We specialise in residential projects covering:-

  • new build
  • renovations
  • extensions
  • conversions
  • internal/external alterations
  • listed buildings
  • within conservation areas

Design and Planning

We offer free initial consultation and comprehensive planning advice. We can provide you with full design and planning for your proposal with submission for planning and the consequent building regulations for Building Control approval prior your building work.


We have over 25 years experience in construction. We can provide all aspect of domestic building work to the level of your requirements from as basic as a building envelop to as complete as hand over.

"From the outset Rita was attentive and helpful and let us know what the expected costs would be to prepare drawings and submit our proposals to the council. She then produced a complete set of drawings to our specification submitted them for planning permission taking care of all the paperwork. Bob and Rita oversaw the whole project start to finish with good humour, efficiency whilst completing it on time and on budget using quality materials sourced from their suppliers. The end result is first class and we couldn’t be happier with the look of the building and the sturdiness of its structure."

"It is with genuine pleasure and satisfaction that I can recommend Pope Plan and Build as your planner and builder. We had a lengthy list of specific wants and desires, without any real knowledge of how to make our thoughts come to life. Bob & Rita Pope helped us through expert vision, planning, craftsmanship and design. They were always pleasant and courteous, as were any subcontractors they brought with them. I cannot say enough good things about them and neither can our friends and customers when they are here. Thank you Bob and Rita for a job masterfully done. We recommend you all the time."

− Nicky Howe

"Bob accompanied us on an early visit to the house when we were assessing it as a renovation project. All of the architectural drawings and plans were done by Rita, who is an absolute wizard at translating ideas onto paper. Everything was done on time, within budget and with minimal disruption to our lives, particularly during the later phases when we were actually living in the property. We would strongly recommend Bob and Rita to anyone considering a building project, an extension or a conversion. They are skilled, highly professional and very reliable. All in all, an extremely professional company, and two thoroughly charming, reliable and honest people."

"For nearly twenty years Bob has delivered many successful building projects for us. He is hugely experienced, clever, skilful and pragmatic. He has made our home a wonderful space to live in."

− Helen Birchenough

"We are extremely pleased with the projects which Pope Plan and Build have done for us of the past 1-2 years. Ours is a listed property and all discussions with planning and conservation authorities were taken care of to our complete satisfaction. Designs for building renovation and extension were imaginative and produced without delay. The build was of high quality and matched in with existing brickwork very well – including specialised flint and brick construction. We felt that the build incorporated the latest developments in standards and technology which helped to control costs. In the event of unexpected changes or if we wanted to add extra requirements, solutions were willingly proposed, agreed and tackled . Lastly we felt that the overall costs were very fair in relation to the work done. Highly recommended."
