Planning Permission for 10 New Homes in Effingham

We are thrilled to have been granted planning permission under delegated powers for 10 new build residential dwellings on a vacant parcel of land adjacent to Church Street, Effingham.


Lytle Associates were approached with a challenging task – to secure planning permission following the refusal of a previous planning application which was also dismissed at appeal. Working closely with the client and wider consultant team, important design decisions were taken to ensure that the proposals were sympathetic to the landscape character and setting around Effingham, preserving the unique character and appearance of the Conservation Area and heritage assets nearby.


The scheme adopts a traditional Surrey style that is appropriate to its rural location, utilising a distinctive palette of materials, colours, and textures giving the development its own distinctive character and sense of place. The proposed dwellings were designed with attractive features utilising materials and finishes consistent with the traditional built form and character of the locality. The materials included plain roof tiles, tile-hanging with feature club tiles, facing brick, render and flint. The overall design and execution of the proposed architectural detailing was key and instrumental in securing planning permission. Lytle Associates are committed to creating projects that enhances the local community and contributes positively to the built environment.


A brilliant work by the team! Huge shoutout to everyone that contributed:
