Tower Hamlets architects | Residential architect projects

At GOAStudio London residential architecture we have extensive experience with working with the Tower Hamlets planning department and we are familiar with all the relevant planning policies that might apply for your home project.

Please see below links to some of our Tower Hamlets residential architect projects for ideas and inspiration.

Your brief requirements, the setting of the property, and the immediate context of the property are some of the factors that will determine what home alterations the Tower Hamlets planners will be prepared to allow. We will advise you about what is reasonable to expect to get approval, what might be tricky but possible, and what most likely the planners will say no to.

Summary planning and design guide | Tower Hamlets residential architect advice

The Tower Hamlets planning department are yet to produce a set of guidelines specially advising on extensions and alterations to flats and houses in the Borough.

At this point of time, we use our experience of the general planning policy and on what has been approved previously; studying similar application outcomes in the immediate area allows us to have a good idea about what is likely to get approval for your home project.

Currently the Council is developing a set of neighbourhood plans and here is an extract from the Council’s website:

“The council’s planning guidance consists of a series of documents that provide a positive approach to managing development by helping to assess planning applications and create a more vibrant, sustainable community to improve quality of life for all.

The Development Plan for Tower Hamlets is comprised of the London Plan (produced by the Mayor of London), Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plans (currently, none are adopted – but the Isle of Dogs Neighbourhood Plan holds significant weight while a referendum on the plan is postponed).

The Development Plan is also influenced by the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), which sets out strategic policies for development and growth within England.

The policies we use to decide planning applications

Local Plan  – guides and manages development in the borough.

Neighbourhood planning – enables the community to guide development in their local area through neighbourhood forums and neighbourhood plan documents.

Monitoring and programme reporting – provides further detail on the performance of council policies, deliverable housing sites and a project plan for emerging documents, through an annual monitoring report, Five Year Supply of Deliverable Housing Sites and Local Development Scheme (LDS).”

Name and origin

Predictably, the name refers to the hamlets and villages closest to the Tower of London. Despite having the whiff of a modern coinage, the name has been used for centuries.  []

You will probably need planning permission if you want to build something new, make a major change to your home – e.g. building an extension, or change the use of your property. There are different rules depending on what you want to do and the relevant planning policy that applies to your property. At GOAStudio London residential architecture we have a proud record of dealing with the local authority planners and building control inspectors and we are on hand to assist with your application and successfully handle every stage of your project.
