Planning permission obtained for a replacement dormer in a conversation area – Hammersmith

We were instructed to submit a planning application for a replacement dormer extension to a residential house within a conservation area.  We supported the application with a Heritage Statement. The design was contemporary in its approach but mirrored that of a nearby large roof extension on the main road.  During Covid, we provided the case officer with a video showing the site in context with the surroundings.  Approved within 8 weeks.

Permission obtained for residential extension and loft conversion – Kew

The scheme involved a single-storey rear extension and loft conversion including the removal of a chimney.
