In this episode, Ruth talks about moving from her background in architecture to planning. Top tips for anyone wanting to gain planning permission and why she loves timber frame so much. “I got into planning to defend the genuinely good.”
Join us in the Grand Build Section at stand B472. We will be available to assist with your enquiries. Ruth and Ian have previously been planning and architectural experts at both the Home Building and Renovating Show and at Grand Designs LIVE in London and in Birmingham.
This is the final stage part of a three-stage planning strategy which included establishing the lawful uses that were already present on the site and then working with the Council to re-configure the site with a scheme that was beneficial to all parties.
Our architects designed the houses which sit in generous plots and benefit from views over the Sussex countryside. The houses respect the existing architectural vernacular and have been designed to maximise the development potential of the site.
2016 has not been without its challenges, for everyone, but we have had another successful year gaining more planning permissions for a host of diverse sites. 2017 promises continued growth for us as a practice and many more planning permissions granted for our clients.
Our offices will be closed from the 23rd of December 2016 until the 2nd of January 2017 inclusive.
On Tuesday Ruth Reed appeared at the Neighbourhood Planning Bill committee in Westminster. Ruth was speaking in her capacity as RIBAPlanning Group Chair and Past President of the RIBA.
Ruth Reed told MPs scrutinising the Neighbourhood Planning Bill that local planning authorities’ support for neighbourhood planning groups should extend beyond technical planning assistance. It should include some elements of design support, such as preparation of design codes, to give expression to the kind of development they want to see and make the process more real for them.
