House Extensions: New Planning Permissions

We’ve achieved planning permission for a variety of extensions recently. Our projects include a contemporary extension linked to a thatched cottage, and a large two-storey addition to a family home.

Extending your house is a great way of making it your own, or also to add value to a property.

Contemporary Extension next to a Listed Building

We recently secured Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission for an extension in Kington Langley. The new section will be linked to the main house, and will face across a terrace. A Heritage Consultant was involved early on to produce a Heritage Statement that assesses the historical significance of the building. Our designs were carefully put together in order to balance this historical significance, and our client’s aims. Overall, there will be an improvement in the buildings setting, and the living conditions of our clients.

The extension plans show the sunken setting, and how a subtle addition can add so much space to the existing house.

Large Two-storey Extension in the Lambourn Valley

Our clients wanted to create a more spacious and modern home from their house in the Lambourn Valley in West Berkshire. The house has been extended before, but we designed a new plan to replace this extension with a generous single- and two-storey extension.

We achieved planning approval with these designs. The overall appearance of the house will be greatly improved, and inside, the floor plans show generous, open plan spaces.

Two-storey Cottage Extension near Pewsey

Another single- and two-story extension was approved for a house near Pewsey. This charming brick and flint cottage was quite long and narrow. The house plans show the new extension, creating an “L-shaped” house with open plan living space downstairs, and a new bedroom suite upstairs.

As well as the extension, we designed a new cart shed style garage, and a new access point. The new access is safer for our clients, and helped us gain approval for the scheme.
