01/08/13 Ideal Planning & Design submit scheme for 170 flats

We have just submitted a planning application for the conversion of a large 10 storey office block into 170 flats

The large office site in Hounslow has been struggling to find tenants for a number of years and the building owner has been looking for a way to maximise the value of the property. Working alongside the client and the council, we have designed a scheme to convert the space into 170 1, 2 and 3 bed flats. The development has been carefully designed to make the most of the existing space and create units with excellent natural light and outlook. The application follows substantial negotiation with the Local Planning Authority who are fully on board with the scheme.

We expect a decision to be made within the next 2 to 3 months.
