Croydon Planning Applications and Architectural Services
Did you know that over recent years, Croydon LPA ( Local Planning Authority) has undergone some major changes and introduced new policies just last year. To their credit, they have won an award for their new detailed and easy to read Local Plan, and many residents find themselves flocking to the various corridors that Croydon has to offer. Our Croydon architects specialise in house extensions Croydon and the postcodes CR0, CR1, CR2, CR3, CR4, CR5, CR6, CR7, CR8, CR9, SM4, SM5, SW16, BR3, BR4, giving us the upper hand to obtaining Croydon planning permission no matter what your project entails!
Croydon council and the planning department has also had their fair amount of criticism over the last year, with issues arising over finances, politics and social housing, bringing them a lot of negative press. We have worked with a lot of local developers around Croydon, and having said the council are likely to give permission to “everything and anything,” the LPA are now stepping up their game to be objective in what they do to give permission for.
Whether you’re located near the busy stations of East or West Croydon, reclining in the picturesque hillsides of Purley, the residential areas of Sanderstead or the ever expanding area of Coulsdon, Croydon has a number of geographical and environmental considerations that should be carefully considered.
Our Architects and Planning consultants in Croydon are highly qualified to produce outstanding work in line with council requirements, without ever compromising on your design. We will work with you to generate a brief and provide you with the best advice to bring your project to life.

The Complete Package from our Croydon Planning Consultants
Did you know that we have had 9 pre-planning, face to face meetings with Croydon council to date in 2021? From these meetings, we have made strong relationships with the council officers and received a great insight into what really ticks their boxes. We are happy to share with you our tricks and tips to get around the odd planning policies that are in implementation, and find out the best design methods to ensure a great chance of approval if you work with us. Although you are the main focus of our project, we have a paradigm where we also work with a, “to serve your neighbours,” approach, to minimise risk of getting planning permission refused.
“WE HAVE HAD COUNTLESS PRE-PLANNING APPLICATION MEETINGS IN WITH CROYDON COUNCIL IN BETWEEN 2020-2022, SO WE REALLY DO KNOW WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO CROYDON LPA!”Our Croydon architects have a vast amount of project experience in Croydon, and can help you with your project and offer valuable advice from the initial concept all the way through to construction. Most of Croydon is made up of chalky grounds, and hence it can become a nightmare when you try and dig the trench foundations for your kitchen extension and can mean that If you don’t have the right architect, you may find yourself arguing with the builder from week 2, when they are digging the foundation and they unexpectedly increase their costs. As your local residential architect, we know that this can be a problem if you work with someone who hasn’t had as much experience in Croydon as us, and they may not preemptively set up measures to avoid these issues ahead of time, potentially costing you 1000’s of pounds. Our team of Architects and planning consultants in Croydon have experience working throughout the area, ranging from Extensions, commercial properties and even new build developments. Furthermore, our Croydon architects have completed a large number of flat conversions to accommodate a rapidly growing borough, as well as many basement extensions due to Croydon’s unique, sloping topography. We have worked on 2 sites in Croydon, 1 site in Sanderstead, 2 sites in Kenley, 2 site in Purley and 2 in Selsdon that are on a slope, and have created beautiful designs working with the vision that the slope is a strength, not a constraint.
