Lyondale Planning and Architecture recently commissioned a full restoration and rebuild of this Listed Building to create 6 residential flats and 2 restaurants.

At Lyondale, we take immense pride in our ability to secure planning approvals for exceptional projects that not only meet the highest standards but also bring about transformative rejuvenation in local communities. Our recent achievement in Dartford, highlights our commitment to preserving heritage while ushering in a new era of vitality.

Within Lowfield Street, we achieved planning approval for a project that is nothing short of prestigious. As custodians of a listed building, we orchestrated the change of use for the ground floor with proposed extensions that enclose the rear curtilage. This transformation is set to introduce two remarkable Cafe/Restaurant spaces.

Beyond the ground floor, Lyondale’s expert team has achieved approval for extensive extensions and alterations to the upper floors, spanning the first, second, and third storeys. The outcome? Six luxurious flats, that blend seamlessly with the historical charm of the building. This project not only exemplifies our prowess in securing planning approvals but also underscores our dedication to preserving history and enhancing the local area as we transform architectural visions into iconic landmarks.

Project Outcome

Lyondale proudly announces a remarkable success story with Bromley Council, showcasing our expertise in securing planning approval for a project of commercial significance. Our recent achievement involves the replacement of a three-story car wash building, which includes an ancillary cafe, car accessories shop, workshop, staff room, store, offices, and conference rooms on a major commercial route in Orpington.

Approval was achieved through using our understanding of the intricate nuances of planning, compliance, and the unique demands of commercial spaces. Our dedicated team has navigated the complexities of this multifaceted proposal, ensuring that it meets all regulatory requirements and is set to enhance the local commercial landscape.

This achievement reflects Lyondale’s experience and knowledge within the commercial sector. With us, your commercial aspirations are not just dreams but commercial realities that will create business success and benefit the entire community.


The project:

“Retrospective change of use from previously existing single dwelling house (use class C3) into an HMO (use class C4)”.

The outcome:

At Lyondale, we thrive on turning challenges into opportunities, and our latest triumph in Woolwich, under the jurisdiction of the Greenwich Council, exemplifies our ability to always find a way to achieve approval, this time a retrospective planning appeal.

In Woolwich, we achieved a remarkable feat by securing planning approval on an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate for an already existing HMO. The proposal involved a retrospective change of use from a previously existing single dwelling house (use class C3) into a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO, use class C4). This transformation is not just a change of use; it’s a testament to our ability to navigate the complexities of a retrospective planning appeal.

This project reflects Lyondale’s experience and expertise in securing planning approvals and showcases our unwavering commitment to making your vision a reality, even when originally faced with refusal by the council.
