Planning Permission

Planning permission is a largely inescapable part of the process when it comes to extending your house, building an office in the garden, or building a new house. Larger outbuildings or building an extension or builds/improvements in designated areas or involving listed buildings, are require planning permission.

In 2023, we want to keep all our clients advised of developments in Planning Applications in and around London.

In addition, whenever possible we will five specific updates on sites relevant to our projects.

General Planning Update – 1

December 2022

In Southwark, approval was given for 153 homes and 3 blocks of light industrial units in St James Road.

In Barking and Dagenham (East London) it was agreed to add 119 more homes to the previous approval of 3000 new homes in Beam Park.

In Westminster, approval of 3 apartments in a Mansion block was given on a vote of 3-1.

Southwark again refused an application for development of a plot in Elephant Park.

General Planning Update – 2

*In Hounslow (not far from Heathrow Airport) members approved plans for 252 apartments. Approval was also given to 18 apartments in Feltham.

*Bromley Council (the same council as 3 of our sites) approved 275 homes in the Calverley Close Estate.

*In Redbridge (East London) plans for 98 affordable homes close to Barkingside Station.

*In Croydon, the committee refused plans to redevelop 6 houses into 67 apartments, due to loss of privacy to surrounding neighbours. An appeal is likely.

*In Cherwell, the committee deferred plans for 530 homes  in Bicester, voting 15-1 for further information.
