    Hove Listed Building Consents

    Our last blog described works at the prominent Grade 1 listed 26 Brunswick Terrace on Hove seafront.  This planning permission was one of a number of permissions for listed building consent recently gained in Brighton and Hove by Shape Architecture.  These permissions vary in terms of size of project and their nature.  Below we set out a variety of permissions and the processes behind them.  Common to all is an approach and dialogue with the Heritage Team that underpins the success of each project.  The listed buildings consents range from contemporary re-workings of flats to retrospective permissions where works have been undertaken without permission.




    Shape Architecture bring to listed works in Brighton and Hove a well-established relationship with the Heritage Team and a wide range of permissions for complex and significant listed projects in London and the South-East ranging from works to the prominent Grade 2 listed Florin Court in Westminster looking out to St. Pauls Cathedral and one of the most prominent Tudor houses in Bray in Berkshire.  Each project is contemporary in its design.




    Listed Building Consent to Hove Flat

    For our project at a Grade 2 listed flat in the Drive, we were asked to create a large contemporary living, dining and kitchen space and a further bedroom.  The project also involved ‘righting some wrongs’ where previously illegal en-suite structures were removed.  Our Listed Building Consent creates exactly what the client had hoped to achieve and enables them to continue to enjoy their house with a growing family.

    Creation of a Duplex flat in Hove Conservation Area

    Third Avenue proposed basement plan

    At Third Avenue we have obtained planning permission for a prominent house in a Conservation Area.  Here a damp and unused lower ground floor store was made into habitable space and linked by an internal stair to the flat above thereby creating an impressive Duplex Flat. The lower ground floor is flooded with light with the formation of a new lightwell to the front of the house.    Once more the planning permission creates exactly what our client hoped to achieve.  




    Retrospective Listed Building Consent in Hove

    In Lower Market Street our Client contacted us to obtain a retrospective Listed Building Consent whereby works had been carried out a number of years ago without planning permission.  Shape Architecture was able to liaise with the Heritage team at Brighton and Hove and obtain a retrospective consent for our client.
