    "Pure Genius"

    We sent Alan a brief and some pictures of what we would like to achieve with a loft lift prior to our meeting as our neighbours have had an overbearing loft conversion and we have lost privacy. By the end of the meeting and restricted by our budget Alan has come up with fabulous design. We had been told by a previous architect that it would be best knocked down and replaced with a new build in other words the easiest most expensive option! Thank you so much and can’t wait for the next stage meeting Alan.

    "Innovative, professional approach"

    We have a 1960's chalet and having spent time and money on a number of architects and design companies, we eventually found Settle and Green. Following some really positive conversations on the phone we decided to appoint them for the initial design phase. Its the best decision we made.

    If you want someone who will genuinely listen to you in terms of what you are trying to achieve, bring an innovative , professional approach and outstanding technical knowledge to back it up then Alan Smith is your man.

    "reflected our vision exactly"

    Alan worked with us on planning a total refurb for our 1950s house. His professionalism, attention to detail and accurate knowledge of the process we needed to follow were hugely valuable. He guided us and produced plans which reflected our vision exactly. Alan was also proactive with the local planning department in addressing issues raised which ultimately resulted in a successful application.

    'I can't recommend Alan Smith highly enough'

    I can't recommend Alan Smith highly enough.

    Alan provided a prompt, punctual and professional service throughout a very tricky case. He advised us on all the different aspects of planning for an outdoor structure which had been built. He recommended we try to obtain a certificate of lawfulness instead of full planning which we feared could get rejected. Alan drew up plans, submitted photographs and liaised with the Council in a challenging 'planning grey area' case.

    We were thrilled when the Council provided us with the Certificate of Lawfulness. We'd definitely use them again. Thank you so much Alan

    'Throughout the whole process, Alan worked with ourselves and the council to ensure that we were kept informed every step of the way.'

    Living in a listed property we had struggled with planning applications in the past, having initial plans dismissed. We then turned to the services of Alan who came up with ideas that suited us and also satisfied the council and the conservation officer's concerns for extending a listed property.

    Throughout the whole process, Alan worked with ourselves and the council to ensure that we were kept informed every step of the way.

    I am pleased to say that we now have our lovely home that we never thought would be possible after the disappointment of previous rejections. I would highly recommend Alan and will definitely be in touch with him again if we need any assistance in the future.

    'Settle & Green were our first choice in architects due to their expertise with greenbelt and historical buildings. They did not disappoint!'

    Settle & Green were our first choice in architects due to their expertise with greenbelt and historical buildings. They did not disappoint!

    Alan's initial design workshop ensured that all of our requirements (and pie in the sky ideas!) were addressed and considered thoroughly, and he was able to show us the first draft of the extension designs by the end of the day.

    Since then, Alan has researched into the planning history of the building, and strategically put together a strong case for our planning application. The weight of the argument to be allowed to extend onto greenbelt was clearly thought out and sensibly put to the local authority - resulting in it being approved.

    Every step of the process was professionally and seamlessly handled - Settle &Green took all of the stress out of the application. We have already recommended to friends and family as we are so happy with their work.
