During an initial consultation, I raised the question of whether Newham planners would allow me to divide my house into two flats. Stephen Waldron called and emailed the planners before he was even appointed and I really appreciate that because 8 out of 10 architects I had called yesterday said, this would be waste of time and money.
Stuart Thomas, Pontardawe
I employed Stephen Waldron Architects Ltd two years ago with the aim of attaining planning permission on a number of plots in the Pontardawe area.
It has been a pleasure working with Stephen in this time and I found him exceptionally knowledgeable and as a result, very easy to work with.
The project was potentially problematic due to its location; however Stephen approached it logically, using great design to overcome any reservations the local authority had.
Stephen was prompt in returning my calls and emails and kept me notified of every step of the process. The project required excellent communication skills and a degree of flexibility in dealing with the local authority planning office, which Stephen exhibited on a number of occasions, helping the applications go through as trouble-free as possible.
Stephen is a very likeable person which I'm sure counts in his clients' favour when dealing with local authorities, and I found his approach to be very professional, with a personal touch.
I would definitely approach Stephen in relation to any future projects, and I would strongly recommend him to others.
Stephen Waldron Architects is the best place to get all that you need regarding design and putting your vision into reality in an excellent manner. Great and clear communication throughout our project. Stephen has a lot of knowledge and goes the extra mile. Truly 1st class service. Highly recommended.
