Residential extensions should be straightforward, but invariably throw up challenges and can be subject to conditions and limitations; neighbours may prove sensitive to the proposed development and councils can be unnecessarily restrictive.

The team at Plainview Planning have extensive experience in negotiating the potential pitfalls of householder development and have a strong history of success in obtaining planning permissions for extensions through both the application and appeals process.

We also undertake curtilage extensions and are adept at presenting the necessary justifications, engaging with councils over potential concerns which can range from the visual impact of residential paraphernalia to precedent creation.
