Patrick + Rosie has planning approval in Little Chelsea.

Almost doubling the footprint of this end-of-terrace cottage required careful negotiation with the planning team at the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

The key to the success was to craft a strong pre-planning proposal which thoroughly explained the unusual nature of the plot, in order to justify what would otherwise be an unachievable level of development.

The new property will offer 3 additional bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, formal living room and an enormous family kitchen space with 5m tall ceilings. This will be flooded with light and access the garden via a colonnade of arched doors.
