Homes in Conservation Areas
We’re fortunate to work on many different types of properties, which means we are fully aware of what’s needed when it comes to planning permission requirements. And this is particularly the case if your property is situated in a conservation area.
By instructing us to work on your loft build, you can have the peace of mind that we have an extensive knowledge of each London borough and areas of the M25. Our team of design experts will produce plans and ensure that the application for planning is dealt with successfully. The planning permission process usually takes around eight weeks, and then it’s on to your build!
If you have a property in a conservation area, it’s likely that the dormer will need to be smaller. However small can be beautiful, and there is still the possibility of having one larger bedroom with a shower room, or even two smaller rooms with a shower room. We can discuss with you what you’d like to gain from your new space, and find the right solution for you.
If you have an Edwardian or a Victorian property in a conservation area, these are ideal for you. Here, London Stock-type bricks are used to build up the side party walls to build a full-width extension. This style of conversion is recommended in conservation areas as they are sympathetic to the building style. It gives you the ability to add a bedroom and a bathroom to your property.
Mansard Conversion for Town Houses
If you have a town house, there is so much potential available to you. In fact, having a double mansard conversion means you could have a completely new level to your property. The space is often made up of two bedrooms and a shower room, but we’re happy to discuss your individual needs. We’ll organise the planning permission as you’ll be changing both the front and rear of your property.
