Looking to Renovation or Extend Your Bexleyheath Home?

Your home isn’t just the biggest purchase you’ll probably ever make – it’s the place where, above all, you should feel happy and comfortable and that things are as you want them. So whether you’re building a new home or improving the one you have, making it perfect is a task you need to entrust to the right people.

Bluelime Home Design is one of the leading home improvement companies in south London and north Kent. We’ve worked with more homes than we can remember over the years, designing everything from new kitchens and bedrooms to whole self builds and new builds. We love a challenge, whether that’s getting the most out of a tight budget or working our magic in a small space; we don’t just want to meet your expectations, but to exceed them.

Living in Bexleyheath

One of London’s more affordable areas for property, Bexleyheath is popular with families thanks to its good schools (including grammar schools), parks and gardens, and 35-minute commute into central London. It has a large number of impressive Georgian, Victorian and 1930s homes as well as several interesting stately homes, including William Morris’s Red House.

As local architects, we have an excellent relationship with Bexley Council and our network of trusted local builders, from whom we always obtain several quotes so we can get both the best value and the best end result for you. We’re extremely familiar with the council’s planning policies and requirements and know how to design homes that meet both your needs and their requirements.

Planning applications in Bexleyheath

Bexley Council is the planning authority for Bexleyheath, so if you want to extend or alter your home or build a new one, you will usually need to submit a planning application to the council. The charges for this are set by the government:

£206 for an extension

£462 for a new home, or a conversion of another type of building into a home (though nowadays some types of conversion don’t require planning permission).

The council can advise you on your application before you submit it. This costs £90 for a letter, or £115 for a meeting of up to an hour.
