Planning is complex, no one can guarantee planning permission. There are many variables in the planning system, and these variables interact in ways that mean that no one can predict the outcome of a planning application. These realities make the task of successfully preparing a planning application incredibly challenging. In order to succeed, you need to have not only a feasible project, but also a precise, proven planning system.
As a multidisciplinary architecture and planning practice based in London, we set out an approach to this challenge that works with the realities of a complex planning system. We developed our unique approach based on practical experience, not only theory, whilst working in over 700 projects in London and across the UK. Our unique six-step sequential model of planning system incorporates safeguards for many of the pitfalls and failings of typical planning application.
Our rigorously tested system allows us to specialise in crafting creative planning application strategies for residential developments with sensitive planning conditions and restrictions. With a dedicated focus in developing good design with our clients and seeking collaborative negotiation with planning officers, we secure planning permissions for unprecedented and quite exceptional projects.
Always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the projects success. Innovative ideas and advice to enhance the value of the outcome. They built a level of trust where we feel like we are delivering the project as partners.
Incredible dedication from the team, very responsive and enthusiastic. Always willing to accommodate our requirements. Very talented individuals working on the project who took a genuine interest in the project which showed in the quality of the outcomes.
I am very happy with the service I received from Urbanist Architecture. They were delightful to deal with and provided an excellent service. Most significantly, I got the planning permission I hoped for.
Ana gave me a fast appraisal of the feasibility of my project, changing the design and saving me much time and money submitting an application to the council that would have likely been unsuccessful.
Thank you very much for helping me with my change of use planning application got approved. Special thanks to Ipek who worked with her heart to deal with my case (very difficult case and with very difficult case officer).

Mr Ufuk Bahar is an exceptionally skilled designer. He did thorough research, meticulously presented the drawings, gave us substantial support and perfectly crystallised our thoughts into an aesthetically pleasing design.
They helped me almost triple my rental income! I got my planning permission not just for converting my house into flats but for also extending my property. I quickly realised how an architect could do much more for me!
We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of time and dedication Mr Ufuk Bahar has spent on our project. He has been extremely professional when dealing with the council and applying for planning permission.

Urbanist Architecture provided an outstanding service in respect of our successful Certificate of Lawfulness application. I had a very tight time frame and she managed to get the whole process tied up in less than a week.
What an awesome service from a great firm, all of the aggravation I had from Dagenham Council melted away with the professional approach. They comprehensively met the questions raised and gave me peace of mind.
