NEURON POD - THE INTERIOR STARTS TAKING SHAPE

The first-fix installation and interior shell coatings are well under way - an intriguing experience and not without a curved ball or two.

124 station rd Sidcup submitted for planning approval

To-Do recently submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Bexley for a new eight-storey development in Sidcup adjacent to the railway station. The proposal comprises an improved retail offer and provides 59 residential units and associated facilities. A planning committee date is expected in early September and Coplan Estates, our client, advise that construction is expected to commence as soon as possible after permission is obtained. See more here

STEYNING TOWNHOUSES granted planning APPROVAL

Planning permission was recently acquired for the provision of 2 new semi-detached three-storey townhouses, replacing an existing two-storey bungalow in West Sussex. The aim is to provide homes on a relatively under-utilised site appropriate to today's lifestyle within an architectural expression and scale appropriate to both the immediate and general context of Steyning.
