We are pleased to have gained planning permission for a multiple level extension on a house in Gosport. The garden to the rear of the house drops away with a steep bank which meant that linking the ground floor of the property with the lower garden level was crucial to the design. Our solution creates a cellar, level with the rear garden and a double storey family room to link the existing ground floor with the garden.

Local authority approvals for Planning permission and Building Regulations are valid for three years. However, gaining permission can take between a few months to the best part of a year if the design is trying to push the boundaries and that is before building work has even started. If you are thinking about extending or remodelling your home in the future, it is a good idea to start planning as early as possible to avoid rushing important decisions and suffering delays. If you would like to arrange an initial consultation with an expert about the feasibility of bringing your dreams to life call Nigel Lewis on 02392 525100.

We are pleased to have been granted planning permission for the extension and remodelling of this 1970s house near Netley Abbey. Working largely with the existing footprint of the building, we created a tailored design that will nearly double the first floor accommodation, whist reducing the overall height of the building. We were able to work with the local planning office to design a contemporary flat roofed home that they considered to be of good design, adding to the mix of house styles in the area.
