However current planning policy and competition for building plots from developers means that a new country house on a green field site can be a very difficult dream to realise. Typically clients who have found their perfect plot have been looking for between 3 and 5 years - sometimes much longer!
Far more common is the 'replacement dwelling' whereby a property is demolished and a new house built in its place. Beware that planning guidelines restrict the increase in size to the extent that it may be better to extend and remodel the existing house. Jackson Architects is happy to advise at an early stage to ensure the right approach.
We also undertake the design and implementation of small housing schemes on difficult sites for developer clients where standard house types would not be appropriate.
