    Overall great design and exceptional value for money. As a first time consumer of architectural services on what was a large project I can not emphasise enough the value add that we got from Ben, Sophie and the wider Aura team. The effort … More and detail put into the design and specification of works along with significant assistance in project management was commendable. As the project evolved it was crystal clear that we saved a significant amount of time and money as a result of having a comprehensive package and most importantly we got what we wanted on budget. Expectations were exceeded in terms of meeting deadlines. Accommodating design changes and assistance with the planning process was also first rate. I would highly recommend the team and look forward to working with them on the next project.

    Couldn't recommend Ben and his team more. We were in a really tricky position with our building project and Ben navigated us safely out of it. Superb guidance, great technical knowledge and what I really valued the most was the communication. … More Always got back to me promptly which makes a real difference when stress levels are high. Thanks Aura!

Do I Need Planning Permission in Ealing?


There are extensions and home refurbishments that can be completed under the rules of ‘permitted development’, but the rules around this are complex.

Coming up with a design that meets your desires and the best use of available space whilst keeping planners at Ealing Council, London Borough of Hounslow or Hillingdon Council happy may well require some top architect talent.

We have often found it wise to put in a planning application to the even if your project is within the scope of permitted development and our in-depth knowledge of the local area can help to deliver your dreams.

Our in-depth planning blog article is handy for more information on this subject, or if you’re short of time to do your own research, simply contact us to discuss the best approach.

We would love to hear your plans!
