Elmbridge Planning Applications and Architectural Services
Elmbridge is a borough within Surrey with the principal towns of Esher, Cobham, Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge and Molesey meeting the open countryside and dense forest lands. As one of the more affluent areas of Surrey, Elmbridge has been the home to some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including Sir Cliff Richard, Mick Jagger and John Lennon., alongside its Royal links dating back to the Tudor period.
Elmbridge is located along the River Mole, stretching through the Borough from Thames Ditton through to Walton-on-Thames. Two other large rivers meander through the borough also, namely the River Wey and the River Thames. This means that it is highly likely that your property resides in a flood risk zone which can create complications during the planning process. In addition, most undeveloped land within the borough is designated as metropolitan greenbelt, making it difficult, albeit not impossible, to obtain planning permission for new developments or structures.
For the reasons set out above, designing in Elmbridge requires in-depth research prior to any design work to determine the feasibility of your project. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you choose a local Planning Consultant and Architects in Elmbridge with care to ensure that your design team knows the ins-and-outs of what is required by the Local Planning Department. Extension Architecture are a reliable & top rated local architect.
“Did you know that a significant proportion of Elmbridge Borough is located within a flood risk area due to several main water courses, including the Thames, Mole, Rhyth and Wey. The council even have a dedicated SPD just for Flood risk! Therefore, it is highly likely that you will require a flood risk statement as a part of your planning application!”

Working With Your Local Elmbridge Architects
If you have a potential project in the area, it is invaluable to have local architects in Elmbridge such as ourselves to provide you with the highest level of expertise, thus giving you the best chance of planning approval. Elmbridge has an extensive set of planning policies and a uniquely ‘green’ context, which can make development challenging, however, with many strong precedents for developments of both new builds and extensions of a largely varying scale, the council is always up for negotiating if you can coherently demonstrate justification for your scheme.
Generally there are roughly 50 Elmbridge planning applications made to the Elmbridge local planning authority per week, of which 5 applications are refused. We would recommend choosing local architects and planning consultants who would be privy to local specialist knowledge of the ins and outs of the Elmbridge borough council. In addition , trained experts would be in the position to address design issues while adhering to the local planning authority’s policies. This would increase the probability of planning appeal success as well as boost the value of your home with smart design choices.
By working with our Architects in Elmbridge, we will give you all of the possible options for your project in order to, not only create the valuable space that you require, but also increase your property’s value.
