2020!

Thank you for your business!

2020

Planning approval Wells.

We are so happy to have gained Planning Permission for our clients in Wells-Next-The-Sea in North Norfolk.

The owner’s approached us to discuss improving the layout of the space available to them for their business in the Conservation Area in the town.

After ongoing consultations with the couple and North Norfolk District Council Planning Department, we have secured permission for alterations to the business space and improved out door area for their private use.

We considered both the property owner’s needs, the privacy of the neighbouring property and the visual appearance from the rear of the building, whilst listening to both our clients and to the requirements of the planning department.

Congratulations to the clients and thank you for entrusting us with your application.

Our London To Do List!

We love a trip to London and a couple of things that are on our ‘to do’ list for our very next visit are The Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street in the city and The Barbican and Barbican Estate.

During a trip to the city, we find it hard not to be in awe of the design and architecture of both buildings and public space. We prefer long days of strolling through the streets to shopping and more usual sight seeing!

The Sky Garden has grabbed our attention, it’s a public space, over 3 floors and offers 360 degree city views from way up high! The planting is based on drought resistant, terraces which offers colour all year, it was designed by landscape architects Gillespies!

The Barbican Estate is a residential estate built in the brutalist style of architecture in the 1960’s and 80’s. It also has the Barbican Arts Centre, Museum of London, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the Barbican Public Library all right at hand. Our nearest Brutalist form of architecture here in Norfolk is the University of East Anglia.

As soon as we have ticked these of the list, we’ll be posting some photos, so do come back to see them!

In the meantime, we are hard at work here in the Fakenham office. Some of our smaller projects currently involve drawing plans for an aviary at a listed property in Norfolk and a double cart-shed near Dereham. On the building regulations front, we are preparing drawings for clients near Diss whose planning application has been passed.

Do get in touch if you have any questions regarding a future self build, a renovation project or extension to your home here in North, West or South Norfolk, Broadland, Breckland or Norwich City. We work with homeowners and local building contractors and developers, are happy to chat and can send out an estimate of our fees.

Approved Applications.

Really pleased to report two more planning approvals for clients.

One for a single storey extension to a home in a Conservation village near Norwich.

Another for a home extension including demolition work in North Norfolk.

Both clients can now move on to apply for Building Regulations approval, before starting their construction work.

For each project we prepared planning drawings, provided location & site plans, submitted the applications and monitored them throughout the process, communicating with both the clients and local authority as required.

Do contact us, if you’d like an estimate of fees for your building project, we can discuss local authority and planning portal fees as well as our own.
