While it can be difficult to obtain planning permission for an extension to an existing building, Anthony Hicks has a very successful history of doing so. We are committed to conservation, and the decades of experience we have in assessing the historic buildings and their potential extension ensure that we are able to propose an outstanding yet appropriate addition to your home.
We have applied for and received planning permission to extend many oak framed buildings and listed buildings over the years. The close working relationship we have with the Local Authorities and Conservation Officers from the early stages right through to the fruition of each project ensures a smooth process that is beneficial to all concerned.
Whatever design you have in mind, our oak framed extensions are always sympathetic to the existing buildings, creating a finished product which looks truly stunning in every respect.
“ I have used Anthony Hicks three times now on projects and I have recommended them to several friends who have also used their services. There are many people professing to build this type of structure and the magazines are littered with such adverts. However none of them in my opinion match the design and finish that Anthony Hicks can provide. I definitely think they use more timber and bigger sizes in the construction. The last building was almost entirely constructed without any metal fittings on the frame as it would have been hundreds of years ago . I am now looking for a site for a new build and I will be speaking to Anthony Hicks in the future” Mr & Mrs Andrews
