About 4D Planning Consultants

4D Planning in an independent multi-disciplinary chartered planning consultancy and architecture firm, combining both architectural skill with town and urban planning knowledge. The firm has grown rapidly over the past 12 years boasting hundreds of successful planning and architectural projects around the UK, many of them featured on this website.

4D PLANNING was formed in 2010 to offer home owners, business owners & property developers a professional and experienced service to obtain planning permission for all residential and commercial developments. 

The 4D Planning team comprises of Planning Consultants (Chartered Town Planners), architectural technicians and building control consultants. We offer a “one-stop-shop” from planning to construction. Our primary objective is to obtain planning permission for our clients. Once planning is granted, we produce all the building regulations for building control approval and liaise with the relevant specialists and stakeholders to enable the building works to commence as quickly as possible and without unnecessary delays.

Our primary focus is on developments located in all 32 of the London Boroughs and in the 10 Greater Manchester Boroughs. 4D Planning's Consultants have notable expertise in preparing and negotiating urban residential and retail assessments, although we operate in all development sectors including mixed use developments.

The planning system is known to be complex, confusing and very frustrating. and there is a lot of bureaucracy involved in the process. There is a sense of confusion and uncertainty among developers, home owners and even the local planning authorities as to which direction the planning system is heading. 4D Planning is aware of these issues and seeks to alleviate this uncertainty by offering home owners, business owners and developers, a professional and practical service to obtain planning permission for most types of development.

Our clients include:

  • Home owners - who wish to extend due to family growth, high costs in relocating and exorbitant property prices, or simply to increase the value of their property.
  • Architects - who require assistance with obtaining planning permission for their developments.
  • Business owners - who wish to change the use of their property.
  • Property developers - who require assistance with the feasibility of potential developments.
  • Organisations - We have helped many charities, London-based European Embassies and local community organisations with their planning requirements over the years.

Why Us?

4D Planning is not just an architecture firm - we know Planning! We don't just design buildings and express our creativity, we also ensure that all planning considerations are met and fully addressed at the early stages of the development. This saves our clients time and money. We also produce all architectural drawings at a fraction of the price many other architects charge.

How we stand out from our competitors?

4D Planning has approx. a 95%+ success rate on all planning applications. In contrast to many of our competition - we don't take on projects that we feel are not feasible and are unlikely to be approved. We are honest and reliable professionals, and if a proposed development is not feasible - we will let you know at the outset and we will email you our thoughts and concerns. We comply fully with the RTPI code of conduct and our clients can testify: Testimonials. Please also see our reviews on Trust Pilot: 

What benefits are there to apply for planning permission?

Many families in London and elsewhere are not able to relocate to a larger home. Therefore an extension is the best way to maximise the internal habitable space to provide additional bedrooms, kitchen space and living space.

Even if you are not ready to build your extension, we can help you get planning permission which will last for minimum 3 years with an option to extend. As a result, your property value will increase instantly, and this is ideal if you are wishing to eventually sell.
