Trusted to gain complex planning permissions for London homes

OLBC have an enviable 100% record for attaining planning consents for basements throughout London. This is where our expertise in planning consultancy comes to the fore: we know what can be done and understand the art of the possible.We are contacted by clients, architects and designers to advise on or assist with basement planning consents, which increasingly require a significant amount of knowledge and expertise to deliver. The rejection of a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) is the single largest reason for basement planning applications to be withdrawn or refused in RBKC. We have the expert knowledge and have built relationships to enable us to create acceptable CTMPs, securing planning consents for our clients.
