Residential Planning and Architecture

We work on getting planning permission and building regulations approval for a range of household extensions, alterations and conversions across a number of local authorities throughout the Greater London area. We have extensive experience in dealing with hundreds of residential extensions and alterations in the London area in both local authority planning officer roles, as architects and planning consultants with other private consultancy and architecture firms.  

Our project experience is based on a wide range of residential proposals, such as:
• Side and Rear Extensions
• Loft Conversions
• Double Storey Extensions
• Basement Conversions
• Garage Conversions
• Flat Conversions
• New Build Dwellings

Planning Applications

We provide everything required for your planning application, including a full survey of your property/site, production of planning application drawings, Planning Statement and Design and Access Statement (if required), and submission of the planning application itself. We then manage the planning application with the council and liaise with them to ensure that your planning application has the best chance of success or that you get permission for as much as is feasibly possibly.

Certificate of Lawfulness

For residential projects that fall under permitted development rights, we are able to apply for and obtain a Lawful Development Certificate. Typical projects would include side and rear single storey extensions and loft conversions. A Lawful Development Certificate is only applicable if you live in a house rather than a flat or maisonette and only applies under certain guidelines.

Building Regulations

Following the approval of the planning application or Lawful Development Certificate, we can provide full Building Regulations drawings and Structural Engineering calculations for you to give to your builder and receive Building Control approval from the council or via a Private Building Control Assessor.
