Surrounded by trees the new house will be constructed using the Mantle Panel Building System of SIPs which provide external wall U-values down at 0.1W/msqK (only one third of Building Regulations maximum) and Air Permeability Rates of just 1.0m.cu/h/msq (10% of Building Regulation requirements). Overall, the CO2 emissions from the property will be more than 25% lower than Building Regulation requirements despite the extensive glazing and without the need to resort to expensive renewable technologies such as PV panels, solar thermal or ground source heat pumps.
Construction is due to start on site later this year.

Planning Permission Granted by London Borough of Merton for Conservation Area Remodelling of Locally Listed House
Tuesday, November 27th, 2012
The London Borough of Merton granted planning permission today for the remodelling of a Locally Listed four storey dwelling in Wimbledon within a Conservation Area.
The works include the demolition of a single storey rear extension and side extension and the construction of a new Orangery to the rear, clearing away previous ad hoc extensions, and the construction of a new three storey side extension including walk-in-wardrobes nestled under the roof of the extension for the Master and Guest Suites.
The application was the subject of both pre-application discussions and negotiations during the planning stage itself to ensure a positive outcome for our client and an approval on the first time of asking, avoiding the need for costly appeals or re-submissions.
Demonstrating an understanding of the importance of the locally listed group of houses while simultaneously acknowledging the need to remove previous unsympathetic extensions and improving the overall functionality of the house allowed both our client and the planners to achieve thier targets.

Earlier this year Waverley Borough Council refused planning permission for the contemporary remodelling of a house in Greenbelt outside Farnham, Surrey because of the 24sqm extension on the rear of the existing 516sqm house was “too large”.
However, this week planning permission was approved for our revised scheme which not only included all of the remodelling works under the original application but also included a rear extension of over 100sqm, some four times larger than that originally refused…
The difference? The additional 102sqm was secured using Permitted Development Rights making the planning application simpler and just about the change from a 1960′s stone clad sprawling bungalow created over 40 years of ad hoc extensions in to a single unified architectural composition
