“Allow us to help turn your design ideas into reality…”

Alterations & Extensions

Are you thinking of extending or altering your property? Do you own land suitable for development in Hastings. Bexhill, Battle, Eastbourne or Rye? We can offer a full design service to help you design the works and development, obtaining either outline or full Planning Permission and ensuring compliance with Building Regulations together with organising and monitoring building works on site to ensure full satisfaction. Plans can be prepared for small projects such as a front porch up to full design and detailing of a large extension or new build.










Internal Refurbishment Extensions and Alterations

We can assist with preparation of Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings for Planning and Building Regulation applications on all building types and production of fully compliant Land Registry/Lease Plans.













3D Modelling 

In addition to our 2D CAD services we are also able to provide 3D models to really help you visualise your ideas. We can produce 3D floor plans, walkthroughs, internal and external rendering.

Our 3D models also help the end user to visualise space requirements and room sizes. It can help overcome any movement, clearance and access issues at an early stage in the design process.

Permitted Development

Some smaller scale extensions can sometimes be built under Permitted Development rights, which may not require full consent. Consultation with the Local Authority will still be necessary by way of a Lawful Development Certificate. Meridian can advise on all projects to establish whether the proposed scheme is Permitted Development and fits within the necessary regulations. Some properties including flats and maisonettes do not have any Permitted Development rights. Further restrictions also apply to listed buildings and properties in Conservation Areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • Lease plans
