Planning - A Busy Time

The last few months have been a busy time at Nye Saunders with many planning consents granted on a range of different projects from assorted local authorities, some more tricky than others, but all a welcome challenge!

Accessibility for All

Nye Saunders look after many Churches in the Guildford Diocese (as well as in London and Hampshire), with our Director Mike Staff registered as an Architect Accredited in Building Conservation. Improving accessibility for all is a constant challenge for historic buildings and we have assisted several of the Churches in our care with this issue recently, installing ramped access and designing accessible toilet facilities.

Alterations to Curtilage Listed Barn

Securing planning permission for listed buildings can be a complicated matter, but a sympathetic design for alterations to a curtilage listed barn with some subterranean elements certainly won over Reigate and Banstead Borough Council.

Making a House a Home in Cranleigh

We work on many unlisted properties, and recently obtained permission from Waverley Borough Council for a single storey extension to a late Victorian property in Cranleigh to allow our clients to re-shape their family home and make it fit for purpose for many years to come.

Neighbour Friendly Extension in Cobham

With some projects, not only local authorities but also neighbours and community groups must be consulted as part of the process. This needs to be handled carefully, as was the case with a recent successfully obtained planning consent from Elmbridge Borough Council for an extension and assorted alterations to a property in Cobham.

Single Storey Rear Extension near Dorking

We obtained consent from Mole Valley District Council for a modern, glazed, single storey extension to a converted barn to allow for an extended kitchen to better connect the clients’ home with its grounds.

Garage and Ancillary Room in West Sussex

Successful planning applications often require liaison with planning consultants. Pelham Planning proved to be the perfect fit to enable consent to be obtained from Horsham District Council for the demolition and replacement of an existing garage to provide working from home space for our client.

Alterations & Extensions to Listed Farmhouse in Cranleigh

No matter the size of your property, you may wish to make changes to it in order to make your home better fit the needs of your family and lifestyle. Waverley Borough Council agreed, and Nye Saunders were able to obtain permission for our clients to do just that with their listed farmhouse in Cranleigh.

If you have a property that needs alterations, an extension or even demolition and starting over, please do get in touch for an initial consultation.
