Planning Consultants that are all Ex-Local Authority Planners from London Borough Planning Departments with have comprehensive knowledge of planning policies within London.
Revive Renovations obtains planning permissions for both homeowners and developers/builders. Based in South West London we have had over 700 planning applications approved within the borough of Wandsworth, over 400 in other South West London Boroughs and over 1600 approvals in all London boroughs combined. As well as obtaining general Householder planning permissions we also identify properties with planning potential that the owners may have not realised, and we help these homeowners maximise the full potential value of their properties. A number of our clients are developers and we source them properties with development potential either via new build development or conversion of commercial units to residential or larger residential properties to smaller residential units.
The planning system is known to be complicated and confusing but with our knowledge and years of experience we can make the planning process a simple process to achieve for you the necessary planning consents.
Historical research is fundamental to understanding the significance of a building or place. We undertake assessments of all types of heritage assets in order to determine the significance of assets and their setting.
We source prospective properties for developers that are likely to obtain planning permissions and we can give pre-acquisition advice on what the Local Planning Authority are likely to allow in prospective planning permissions.
Using our knowledge of the local planning system we can maximise the full potential value of a property before owners put it to market by obtaining them planning permissions for extending the property or sub-dividing to smaller units.
Revive have completed a number of planning applications for Joseph Homes LTD and still maintains a 100% success rate. Needless to say, we are very happy and continue to recommend Revive to our associates.
Joe was recommended to us by a quantity surveyor working on a neighbouring property & we have been very happy. He is very easy to work with and has been very professional, quick to make amendments and get the plans to the council.
I was keen for many years to secure planning permission to extend my house. My reservation was that to my knowledge no-one on my side of the street had previously secured planning permission and I was therefore cautious about spending money trying to secure planning permission if there was a chance I would get nothing in return.
Revive was recommended to us from a friend, and we therefore invited him to our house to advise us. Joe was incredibly pleasant to deal with and seemed to have a huge amount of knowledge. We had huge confidence in his advice because he has previously worked in the planning department of Wandsworth Council and therefore seemed to know what they look for.
Joe was very honest and transparent in advising us on our planning and secured all 3 parts of the planning permission we put in for (one of which I had very little expectation on as it required raising the roof of our house). I was delighted with this and it far exceeded my initial expectations.
Subsequently we have been quick to recommend Joe to other friends who are looking to secure planning permission. What I have been particularly impressed with is Joe’s honesty. He has even talked himself out of potential jobs with some of my friends if he feels their chance of success on planning permission is too small or if their potential increased property value is outweighed by the costs – this kind of honesty in my opinion is very reassuring these days!
Andrew and Joe from Revive were recommended to us by a friend. They were very honest with the limitations we had with our property and what we were likely to get planning permission for from Lambeth Councils unlike other architects we had round. With the restrictions we had they were still able to design an extension that suited our needs and were able to create an extra bedroom and enlarged kitchen/dining area for our growing family.
We have worked with Revive on many residential projects throughout London and they have continuously achieved planning permissions for our clients in designs they wanted. Revive also provide us with the full package of structural drawings etc which makes it easy for us builders to quote reliably from for our clients.
Just a quick email to say thanks for all your help. It’s a confusing process unless you know what you are doing so to have you deal with everything quickly, efficiently and at a very reasonable rate was a great help.
We have worked with Revive on many jobs in Chelsea where their knowledge on Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings is always invaluable; they continuously achieve planning permission / Listed Building Consent for our clients.
We found Revive from a recommendation on nappyvalley, they were professional and well priced compared to other quotes, and we will recommend them to our friends.
Revive have continuously given us correct advice on planning, conservation and listed building matters and will continue to use their services for the years to come.
