MJH Architects have secured planning permission for a front extension at Heatherwood Close, Wanstead. Due to the unique corner plot, with its under utilised front garden and the enclosed back garden with 20m high trees on the rear boundary, there was a strong case in terms of layout and design for a front extension. The process was not as straightforward as a permitted development proposal but with close collaboration with the local authority a very rare front extension was approved.
