Our experienced team will be able to help you navigate through all things architecture, design, planning and more.

Navigating the planning system in Lambeth

If you live in Lambeth, you know that it is one big borough and certainly not a place with one single identity. Which is to be expected when you consider that it stretches all the way from leafy Clapham streets to the bright, buzzing riverside of Southbank.

Because of the sheer size and uniqueness of each and every segment of this much loved London borough, getting your plans approved can be challenging. On top of this, Conservation Areas make up 30% of the borough. This is a special designation with specific rules and restrictions that are in place to protect, nurture or improve the area. Depending on where you live and what type of extension you’re looking to get, these limitations could pose a challenge to getting your planning approved.

And while some statistics are promising – most planning applications receive a decision within 8 weeks – some are less so: there is only a 75.25% planning approval rate overall. That’s where we come in. Our planning consultants have a wealth of experience, within councils, architecture and design, so they’re in a fantastic position to get your plans the green light.

Each and every home extension project is different and will vary in price significantly depending on a number of factors, including the existing condition of the property, the property’s precise location, the size, style and materials of the extension.

  • Rear extension: £52K
