Residential work covers a variety of projects, ranging from house extensions, individual new homes, site redevelopment for 2-10 new houses, through to green field site development of 70 homes. Some recent examples of our work are included below.
Planning permission was secured for the construction of 21 residential dwellings on land within Petworth. A carefully planned layout was required, which considered the site's designation within the conservation area and numerous heritage assets in the locality.
Land in Petworth
Site in Cranleigh
Planning permission was secured for the construction of new housing development on a Green Field site to the south of the village. The development necessitated a well-designed layout which considered the of areas of Ancient Woodland, and proposed residential development on neighbouring land to the north.
Town End Gardens
A single bungalow originally stood on the site. Planning permission was then secured for a development of 12, two storey dwellings. The design of the new dwellings responds to the character of the immediate surrounding area, was later amended and these units are now occupied.
Site at Hindhead
Planning Permission was secured for 3 new dwellings as ‘infill’ development on the site of an existing large Edwardian dwelling. Part of the existing dwelling was demolished to make way for the construction of the additional dwellings. All units have been built.
Planning permission was secured for extension of this existing cottage, under Permitted Development Rights. Once the principle of extensions had been established, planning permission was sought and granted for the conversions of the building to form 2 residential units.
This house had already been extended up to the limit under Green Belt Policy. Planit Consulting worked with the client and architect to secure planning permission for remodelling the house to enhance the living space. Further extensions were then secured using Permitted Development Rights, to allow for a single storey rear extension.
The clients for this project wished to construct a replacement dwelling of a high quality contemporary design. Permission was secured for the main dwelling in 2013 once this was constructed a further extension to form a bedroom-wing was secured in 2015. The house is now constructed and is in an exemplary design of outstanding modern architecture. As featured in Grand Designs.
This project was undertaken as a ‘Paragraph 55’ house in the Green Belt, proposed on the basis of ‘truly outstanding or innovative design’ as required by Paragraph 55 of the NPPF. Planning Permission was granted on Appeal.
Our brief for this project was to obtain permission for a replacement dwelling of a contemporary design. Planit Consulting secured a series of Certificates of Lawfulness for permitted development extensions which the client then constructed. Planning permission was then granted for a replacement dwelling of 750 sq. m.
House in the woods
Planning permission was secured for a new dwelling following demolition of the existing house. The client wanted a traditional design, which was constructed in stone and brick, with a rendered rear elevation.
The clients brief for the project was a replacement dwelling, of traditional proportions with a contemporary feel. The resulting dwelling was finished with render with large areas of glazing overlooking the south facing garden. The house also included a partly subterranean basement swimming pool.
