Planning Spotlight: Southwark

Southwark is blessed with homes of all shapes and sizes. From the swanky modern flats by the river to the charming townhouses in East Dulwich, there’s something for everyone in this diverse London borough.

However, like many London locations, you might be struggling to find the space your family needs. Whether you’re in need of one more bedroom or a large kitchen, it can be tempting to move rather than improve. However, who wants to leave their community? Their local pub? Those tasty bakeries on Lordship Lane?

That’s where Resi comes in. Unlike other architecture practices, we can help take you from zero all the way to home hero. Our designers can not only advise on extension / conversion options, they’ll even manage your planning application, before taking care of all the nitty gritty technical work you’ll need for getting permission to build. We’ll even help you find vetted contractors working in Southwark.

Not convinced? Just look below to see our planning success around your borough.

Local authority planning

Do you need planning permission?

Planning permission is the process by which your local authority approves or refuses your building project. You provide drawings of your proposed plans and your council makes a decision based on your property’s history, area planning policy and any local restrictions.

If you’re only making minor alterations to your home, it’s possible that you will already be covered by a type of general planning permission called Permitted Development.
