Planning Approval

In recent years obtaining basement planning approval has become extremely challenging as local authorities have significantly increased the technical justification which is required prior to the grant of planning consent.

Understandably, neighbours and residents association groups may have concerns relating to basement construction and these are often voiced through objections to the grant of planning permission.

As the most successful planning applicant for basement design and construction, the architectural team at Cranbrook possess a wealth of knowledge and an unrivalled depth of expertise that is used to our Client’s advantage.

Our architectural team regularly obtain planning approval for basements that are not only located within conservation areas but also as extensions to Listed Buildings and other heritage structures. Our sensitive and collaborative approach is welcomed by local authorities and our reputation can often overcome objections.

Our designs are acknowledged as being the best within the basement sector as evidenced by the award of the prestigious Hampstead Garden Suburb Architectural Prize and Local Authority Building Control Excellence Award.
