Our Vision is to combine Planning and Architectural excellence for the benefit of all our Clients.
Providing excellence through collaboration and design.
At Arch Planning, we truly understand how local planning authorities operate in London and will use this benefit to your advantage by designing and preparing your project in such a way to give you the best possible chance, not only at planning stage, but even with an appeal in mind. We believe that in the challenging world of planning & architecture, you always need to be ahead of the game. Our services includes preparation of planning drawings & supporting statements and/or full project management of the entire application and building control process, up to tender stage.
At Arch Planning we have built considerable expertise in delivering site appraisals for a range of projects, from small building plots to mixed use development, new retail complexes as well as urban extensions. From the outset, we focus on the Local Authority’s policy context for the area (i.e. is your aspirations for the site, aligned with the Local Plan Allocations etc) as well as sustainability, viability and delivery to assess the intrinsic characteristics of a site and its often complex reciprocal relationships with the surrounding context.
Arch planning provides the full range of architectural services in London from preliminary appraisal of client needs, through to design stage & submission of a planning application and ultimately the successful handover of an approved project. We will be very open and honest right from the start in terms of your likely success of obtaining planning permission. Our philosophy is simple; we apply our extensive knowledge and experience, imagination & creative thinking to our client’s brief to develop cost effective & sustainable solutions that are attractive and practical.
Over 20 years of local and international industry experience in both the private and public sector with a track record of successfully navigating thousands of development proposals through the English Planning System.
At Arch Planning, we truly understand the intricacies and pitfalls of the English planning system – we will use this benefit to your advantage by combining cutting edge planning and architectural knowledge and thorough Client collaboration to ultimately bring forward excellent development proposals.
Your project is in capable hands.
A design concept in architecture may start as a philosophy, a powerful idea, or a simple set of guidelines. From there, it slowly evolves into a conceptual design for the project that becomes a roadmap or guide to follow throughout the rest of the project.
We brainstorm, collaborate, and discuss our ideas with you so that you can provide feedback on the designs and help to narrow down the options. All the while, referencing the project requirements that must be met by the collectively chosen design.
‘Success after a 2 year planning battle with the my local planning authority!
Jacob was instrumental in securing approval after my application went to appeal for the second time. He was very responsive and thorough, knew the process and pitfalls, and above all else was a very supportive throughout.
I could not have got there without him. Highly recommended!’

‘We couldn’t be happier with the service that we received form Jacob. We used Jacob to appeal a planning permission decision that had been rejected by the council on multiple attempts, and thanks to Jacob we won the appeal! We are absolutely thrilled with this result
Attempts to communicate with the council and resolve the issue ourselves had made us feel like we were getting nowhere; we felt completely disheartened.
It was all thanks to Jacob that we won the appeal, and this really has had a transformational impact on our lives.
Architectural consultants with a passion for design.
