PLANNING PERMISSION FOR PROPERTY EXTENSIONS IN KENSINGTON

 

Professional builders like us help home and business owners in Kensington to apply for planning permission ahead of property extensions. We offer advice on various commercial and home extensions, in addition to property conversions. Because not all projects require approval from the local authorities, we assist clients by producing architectural drawings that consider building regulations and restrictions.

COMMERCIAL AND HOME EXTENSIONS

 

To help our Kensington clients avoid unnecessary delays for property conversions and extensions to commence, we produce accurate architectural plans to speed up the approval process. These drawings outline the dimensions, structural specifications and the type of materials our builders intend to use – all of which comply with safety and building codes. Our designers and builders also advise clients on the limitations related to commercial and home extensions, which require local council authorisation.

 

Planning permission applications should be completed as soon as the final design concept has been agreed, as permits can take up to 8 weeks to be sanctioned. If Kensington clients are refused, solutions and resubmissions for commercial or home extensions delay the process even longer.

 

Not all property extensions need prior approval, which depends on the size and location of the construction. Nevertheless, applications need to be submitted with architectural plans to prove that your project adheres to building protocols.

 

The architects and builders at Hayman Developments Ltd highlight the following restrictions related to property conversions and extensions:

 

  1. Commercial and home extensions cannot measure more than 40 cubic metres at terraced properties or 50 cubic metres for detached or semi-detached houses. This applies to property conversions in Kensington too.
  2. Property extensions and conversions cannot be built higher than the apex of the original roof.
  3. Builders are not permitted to construct property conversions or extensions that sit further than the existing plane of the roof.
  4. Side property extensions must be installed with windows that are frosted or obscured, to provide privacy for Kensington clients and neighbours.
  5. Any raised platforms, balconies or verandas require permits to ensure health and safety regulations are met.
  6. Commercial and home extensions must be fitted with windows that can open at least 1.7 metres above floor level.
  7. Architectural plans need to include materials which are similar in appearance to the rest of the roof at your Kensington property.
  8. Property conversions and extension may be refused for listed buildings, British Heritage sites or venues located in conservation areas.

 

 

NEW BUILDS

 

In comparison to property extensions, Detailed Planning Permission (DPP) applications are required for Kensington clients who are undertaking new build projects on brownfield (previously developed land) or greenfield plots (undeveloped land). Planning permission, complete with proposed architectural plans, can be requested prior to the purchase of vacant plots. These are required for Kensington clients applying for financial support too.

 

As soon as approval from the local authorities has been received, you can rely on our builders to manage new build projects from start to finish.
