We act as planning consultants, looking after every aspect of the tricky planning application process for you, as well as taking care of the permissions required for work on listed buildings, and buildings in conservation areas.
The laws governing what may and may not be done to residential properties in London are highly specific, very strict and frequently rather random.
What applies in Kensington and Chelsea might be quite different in Westminster. What may be done without difficulty to one building might be quite impossible on the building next door.
Planning consultants London
We advise anyone considering investment in a London property to check the rules applicable to their intended purchase (something with which we can assist).
You may be surprised or discouraged entirely by limitations which could prove impossible to overcome.
It is foolish, however, to proceed in the mistaken belief that everything will somehow resolve as you would like it to, despite suggestions you might receive to that effect from less experienced (or indeed less principled) architects.
As a matter of course, we will handle all Planning Applications, Applications for License to Refurbish, Listed Buildings Applications, negotiations with Managing Agents and Residents Associations, Schedules of Conditions, Party-wall Agreements, Traffic Management plans and other relevant protocol for you.
Helping your planning application go smoothly
Tyler Mandic enjoys an excellent relationship with the Planning Authorities in each of the Boroughs in which we work, and have an excellent record of negotiating Planning Applications and obtaining Permissions for our clients’ projects.
In the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the Borough of Westminster, where we are in both cases regular applicants, we maintain strong professional relationships with individual Planning Officers. We are pleased to say that, on occasion, we have even been suggested to clients by the planners themselves, because of our understanding of the regulations involved, and how best to work with these.
Even in an initial discussion with you, our knowledge of local planning restrictions will usually enable us to offer a fairly accurate idea of what will or will not be permitted.
