Get Planning and Architecture’s recent win in the London borough of Croydon

Project ref: 7290

GPA gets planning permission for change of use of basement parking area, erection of single storey extension to form additional flats in an existing building.

The proposal reflected careful consideration of the pre-application advice received and proposed a high-quality scheme for proposed development and alterations to lower ground floor garage parking to create 1 x 2 bedroom flat and 4 parking spaces.

The project reflects a high level of design quality. Policy SP 2.1 and SP2.2 of Croydon's Local Plan Strategic Policies (CLPSP) promotes the requirements for new housing development including conversion, but only where it respects the character and amenity of adjoining residential areas. The proposal suggests increasing Croydon council's Housing Stock.

GPA's Planning and Architecture team devised a winning application by carefully understanding the client vision and working on strategic solution to deliver a high benchmark level of design quality. The project application complied with National Planning Policy Framework and Croydon Council's Guidelines.

Client Reviews:

"Thanks for all your efforts at Get Planning with this application." Ref: 7290

"My experience elsewhere has been the confrontational approach of 'throw in a planning application, get refused, appeal, get refused, cut back what's proposed, repeat the whole cycle again'. So, it has been a real pleasure to work with Get Planning who have provided me with an efficient, professional service. I am impressed by their ability to create proposals that the planners engage with positively, and their success in getting permission. Firmly recommended." Ref: 10048
