Our services include offering professional feasibility planning advice on domestic extensions, house conversions as well as on change of use applications and other commercial developments in the London Borough of Hackney.
We have in-house chartered town planners who specialise in urban planning, retail planning, transport planning and heritage and conservation. We have a lot of experience working with Hackney Council on a wide range of application proposals.
If you are seeking professional independent Planning Advice to establish: a) whether planning permission is required; and b) if your proposed development is likely to be granted permission, or if you require Architectural Drawings for your Planning Application to Hackney Council, 4D Planning and our team of Chartered Town Planning Consultants are available to offer our expertise, and to guide you through the planning process and to help you obtain planning permission for your development.
Our residential projects range from small domestic extensions such as single storey extensions, loft conversions, garage conversions to new build blocks of flats and houses. Our commercial projects range from change of use applications to and from shops, restaurants, educational facilities, medical centres, offices and health and leisure. We have in house architectural technicians who produce all the architectural drawings for your planning application and for building control (producing the building regulations and tender documents and schedules for the builders).
By instructing 4D Planning to represent you as your agent, we will manage the planning application and drawings process on your behalf to ensure a smooth and professional process. We will give you the best chances possible to obtain a successful outcome from the planners at Hackney Council. We will also liaise with the council on your behalf and respond to all queries.
Fees - Our fees are very competitive, and this is guaranteed! All revisions to the application documents and drawings are inclusive in the fixed fee and there are no hidden costs.
The planning system is complex and can be confusing. Planning policies are regularly updated and there are a lot of grey areas in Planning. Our team at 4D Planning are here to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible for our clients while achieving planning permission for the development in record time.
We offer the following services:
Sometimes mistakes happen and building works are carried out without planning permission. If this happens, Hackney Council will usually write to you asking that you apply for planning permission retrospectively or alternatively to remove the extension or breach of planning and return the property back to how it was before the breach occurred. 4D Planning have assisted many clients around London to overcome this challenge and to successfully obtain retrospective planning permission. Please give us a call on 0203 1500 183 for a free consultation. If we can help you we will offer you a competitive quote. If not, we will let you know as we only take on projects that we feel have a relatively good chance of success, however there is no possibility to guarantee that the Council will make the right decision.
4D Planning have in-house Chartered Town Planners who specialise in challenging the Council's wrong decisions. We prepare a strong case why planning permission should have been granted and we draft the appeal statement and submit to the Planning Inspectorate on behalf of the client. Our fees are fixed and competitive and sometimes we may also offer a no-win-no-fee. If you would like a professional opinion whether an appeal has any chance of success (and if so, how high of a chance) please email us the decision notice, drawings and officer's report to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as soon as we have looked through all the documents. There is no charge for this initial service.
4D Planning have in-house architectural technicians and designers to help our clients achieve the design and layouts that they want. Our drawings are used for obtaining planning permission and for building control approval. We always take into account all planning considerations and building regulations simultaneously while preparing the architectural drawings for our planning applications. Once planning permission is granted, we then prepare the building regulations for Building Control approval and the Tender Pack/ documents for the builders.
Our drawings have won awards and have assisted hundreds of clients over the years with all sorts of projects. Please see samples of our drawings, 3D visuals and illustrations by clicking here. We can prepare lease plans which are Land Registry Compliant for your property conversion or new build. We can also produce simple planning drawings for the sake of illustrating the potential layouts of a property. We liaise with Structural Engineers and Partywall Surveyors and other professionals to ensure that each project is run as smoothly as possible from inception to construction.
