London Borough of Lambeth is located on the South of the Thames and was formed in 1965 when Streatham and Clapham were merged with the then metropolitan borough of Lambeth. It is the 9th largest Borough by population with around 303,100 inhabitants and approximately 130,000 households. The Borough is currently overseeing several large regeneration projects, such as a proposed development around Brixton town hall.
Get Planning and Architecture has overseen a number of successful projects in the London borough of Lambeth. Our team of experts have worked on a wide range of projects here, and are familiar with the Local Planning Authority.
Lambeth Planning & Conservation Areas
Conservation areas are sites of historical or architectural importance. Building and redevelopment can be a more complex process due to more planning regulations and constraints applying within such areas. However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.

Lambeth Planning Applications & Appeals
There are approximately 80 planning applications submitted for building and redevelopment each week to the local planning authority in Lambeth and around 2 appeals in respect of rejected applications. Within listed buildings and conservation areas planning permission can be more complicated to gain. Get Planning and Architecture has chartered planners and chartered architects who are members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) with both the expertise and knowledge to guide you through the process and we have had a high level of success in winning appeals.
At Get Planning and Architecture we like to stay up-to-date with planning and development strategies in London. We know that Lambeth Council has an ambitious long term vision for the regeneration and redevelopment of the borough called Future Lambeth.
To kick-start this, plans to develop the Albemarle House site were given the go ahead by Lambeth Council in 2007, and construction started in 2013. Construction at the development, named, ‘the Junction’ was expected to finish this year, in 2015. This project aimed to create 92 private apartments in a mixed use scheme on the site located between Brixton Road and Stockwell Park Walk. The £14m development comprises two buildings with one providing new offices at ground floor level for Community Trust Housing, one of the organisations responsible for the redevelopment of the site. The focus will be for all round improvements to Lambeth economically, aesthetically and community wise.
