Thank you Paul for making planning the extensions on our property such an enjoyable process. Having looked at your initial draft plans for our property, it was clear you had understood exactly what the essential requirements were for us. The second draft plans were a simple tweaking of a couple of points, and turned out to be the final plans we submitted to the council. Your guidance in what was practical from a layout point of view to what would work visually for a property of our age has left us with what we consider to be the perfect house inside and out. Thanks again for making it so easy for us.

I would like to express my sincere thanks for your invaluable advice and assistance with the alterations to my bungalow. The new kitchen diner looks fantastic and is everything I expected it to be. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any prospective client.

Paul Twyman of PDS Planning drafted the plans for our new dormer loft extension. Not only was he very professional in his approach, but he was also very knowledgeable about the rules surrounding planning permission, which allowed us to get the paperwork sorted out more quickly than anticipated. He was also very well connected and put us in touch with firms of reputable builders and structural engineers to allow us to complete the work to a great standard, at reasonable cost and with minimum hassle.

We have known Paul Twyman at PDS for a considerable number of years. He has dealt with all our planning needs, both residential and commercial, throughout this time quickly and efficiently and always with a positive outcome. We would have no hesitation in using PDS for any future projects.

I employed the services of Paul Twyman to design a bungalow on a rather confined triangular plot of land in Greenford, West London. My main requirements were that, as I was going to live in the property, it should blend in with the properties in the surrounding area and also that the bungalow utilised as much of the land as was legally possible. He managed to achieve both of these requirements. On completion of the bungalow, he subsequently drew plans for the garden outhouse which were passed first time.

I was able to sit with Paul at different stages of the design of the bungalow and he was more than happy to adjust the plans to incorporate any requirements I had prior to application, I also found his fees to be very reasonable.

Paul was very efficient and trustworthy and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any prospective client.

When we were looking at the possibility of converting our loft, we asked Paul Twyman at PDS Planning to come in and talk to us about our options. His drawings and vision became our dream and we now have the space we really wanted.

Simon and Julie Byrne, Ruislip

I am delighted to write a recommendation for PDS, and very grateful that you were recommended to me. This building project is the first I have been involved with and your clear explanation of the problems we faced and excellent suggestions of how to overcome them left me feeling informed and confident about how to proceed. It was invaluable to be able to draw on your professional expertise and judgement. Thank you also for your speed and efficiency in dealing with queries and producing drawings, which meant that there was scarcely any delay in work proceeding.

We bought our house, a 3 bedroom end terraced house in Ealing after selling our 4 bedroom terraced house in Hanwell in 2012. We had already gone through the experience of employing an architect for our previous property and completing a loft conversion. As we were moving to a house with fewer bedrooms, as a family of 5, we had decided to purchase the property with a loft conversion in mind. Thus even before the purchase was complete we had solicited opinions from our previous team of architects & builders as well several other teams of architects/builders through friends in Ealing and Hanwell, who had done loft conversions. PDS was one firm recommended by our friends in the French Community.

On the day of our purchase, Paul Twyman of PDS agreed to come round, whilst we were literally moving in and do a preliminary check to determine whether our proposal of a 2 bedroom loft conversion was possible. He was remarkably efficient and gave us a succinct but precise assessment on the day of the feasibility of the project. We were given a timetable and run through of everything that was required. Within 3 weeks of the move he had completed his fuller assessment and had produced scale drawings for the project. Proposals were then submitted to the Ealing Council which were approved. Building specifications and a Buildings Inspector were also smoothly obtained and there was no real delay between January and April when the building work was begun.

We were very impressed with the both the timing and execution of the work and any details which the builders required of PDS whilst the work was being completed, was easily ironed out. We also made use of PDS's contacts for additional specialist help, not only a suitable inspector for the work but also a surveyor to complete some of the party wall issues.

This added to the satisfaction with the service we had obtained from PDS and we have no hesitation in recommending PDS to any future client.
