4D Planning Consultants 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.
Our primary focus is on developments located in all 32 of the London Boroughs and in the 10 Greater Manchester Boroughs. 4D Planning Consultants has notable expertise in preparing and negotiation of 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.
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 time and money to our clients.

What benefits are there to apply for planning permission?
Many families in London 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.
