Lickey Grange scheme

In Bromsgrove our work has largely focussed on suburban and rural housing, with plenty of projects needing specialist green belt planning permission – one of our areas of expertise.

Projects like the award-winning Lickey Grange scheme of large detached family homes are our bread and butter and demonstrate our experience in handling budgets and client expectations, as well as working with stakeholders like Bromsgrove Borough Council.

In addition to these larger residential projects, we have also worked frequently on country listed buildings, such as at Hagley Hall.

Other projects in Bromsgrove and the West Midlands green belt include an enlargement for Catshill Baptist church, numerous extensions to homes along prestigious Mearse Lane and also in Aston Fields. Our experience on these projects shows in our excellent planning success rate and high-quality designs – giving you the architects’ service that you’re looking for: competent, honest and clear.

Unveiling the Secrets of a Historic Property Transformation

Historic Property Transformation

Lapworth Architects, a prominent architecture firm based in Birmingham, recently showcased their expertise by successfully revising plans for a substantial extension on a residential property steeped in history. The project, initially handled by Dilworth Design Ltd, faced a multitude of challenges, including heritage concerns and an uncooperative local council.

However, the unwavering dedication and strategic guidance of Lapworth Architects led to the project’s eventual approval and a stunning transformation. This article delves into the intricate details of this captivating project, exploring the hurdles faced by the team and the ingenious solutions employed by Lapworth Architects to ensure a resounding success.

Successful Collaboration with Local Authorities

Throughout the project, Lapworth Architects was grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Nina Chana of Bromsgrove and Redditch Council. Her dedication to ensuring a positive outcome for the project was instrumental in its eventual success. Chana’s involvement exemplifies the importance of effective communication and cooperation between architects and local authorities in achieving the best possible results for clients.
