Planning Services and Advice

Achieving planning permission isn’t always a straightforward process and many regions have varying criteria. Using our experience with local planning departments across Sussex, Kent, Surrey, Essex and London, we can assist you in maximising the potential for your site.

Structural Engineering

We offer full structural and civil engineering services and we can produce the necessary calculations required to satisfy Building Control for projects of all sizes, ranging from a single beam for a new opening to a full specification for a new build.

Architectural Design

We produce drawings for various types of developments and we work closely with our clients and local planners to ensure that we create a scheme that meets your criteria and is acceptable for approval. We will bring your project to life, whether it's a one-off build on your dream plot or a large scale site for development.

Land Buying

We are looking to acquire land in and around Sussex. We’re seeking residential development opportunities which can either begin as a blank canvas or have planning permission already in place. We will consider all types of land, such as brownfield, contaminated and back land developments. We also specialise in conversions of existing property.

As a team with comprehensive development experience, we can give you a quick idea of your property’s potential. As a small executive team, we can provide feedback quickly and we deal with land purchases promptly and in an open and honest manner.

If you have land or property that you feel could make for a unique development opportunity, please email or call us on 01424 552930 or use this form.

We want to assist you in realising the potential of your land and creating homes to be proud of - improving and regenerating our environment for the better.


“A dedicated company from start to finish. With a real personal touch from Mark who was contactable throughout by ourselves and our builder. Mark was adaptable and explained everything clearly so we always knew and understood what was going on. An all round excellent company with great work ethics.” - Laura Baugh, South London

“Mark and his team did a fantastic job. They have understood the architectural design and created a beautiful structure that maximised our space without compromising any of the finishes and details we wanted. Excellent service throughout the entire process either by attending site meetings, phone or email. Really recommend their services.” - Joao Silva, Surrey 

“Kelp Studio produced drawings and steel calculations for our new extension. A pleasure to work with and they dealt with getting planning permission approved by the council. I couldn’t fault their work and commitment to our project!” - Grant Cullen, East Sussex

“Kelp Studio were professional and helpful throughout the process. They listened to what we wanted, advised us with regard to what was possible, drew up plans accordingly and submitted them for us. Mark was always available for advice and would often pop around to discuss matters with the builder. The work he did for us was competitively priced and we would have no hesitation in calling upon Mark’s services again.” - Stefan Couch, West Sussex
