Eddystone Road receives planning permission

Our exciting project for the full rebuild of a terraced house in Brockley has been granted permission by the London Borough of Lewisham. The proposed rebuild is a response to numerous structural problems with the existing property. By being a full rebuild, the construction work will be zero rated for VAT, helping to offset some of the additional cost of the rebuild. The project is due to start on site in September.
