Cohanim Architecture is pleased to announce that we will be acting as lead architects, and masterplanners for a £15m+ 2-acre residential scheme in Buckinghamshire. The site is located in a sensitive locale, yet bordered on all four sides by 30m treelines, and commercial premise, along with a London Underground railway line passing alongside it. Our early concepts indicate a site-density of circa sixty homes, a new public space, waterside living and the provision of an important new neighbourhood within walking distance of a London Underground station, schools and a town centre. The final schemes design will have evolved from a combination of great architecture and town planning, regulations and criteria such as the Adopted Local Plan, Emerging Chiltern & South Bucks Local Plan and PPS15, among others. We look forward to carrying out extensive consultation with the council, parish council and neighbourhood at key stages during the project. For press queries relating to the scheme, please forward to [email protected] More information will be released over the coming year.

Appointment as Masterplanners for 2 acre site in Buckinghamshire.

Cohanim Architecture and the client have finally received a complete "Faculty Permission" to build the first extension to the Grade 1 Listed St. Lawrence Church in the Diocese of Oxford as Church Architects. This is the first extension to the church since is was rebuilt in 1763, over 250 years ago. In no particular order, we have navigated:

1. Diocese of Oxford Outline Permission
2. Wycombe District Council Planning Permission
3. Wycombe District Council Heritage Architect
4. Wycombe District Council Building Control
5. DAC Permission
6. National Trust
7. English Heritage
8. The Georgian Society
9. Church Buildings Council
10. DAC Faculty Recommendation
11. Diocese of Oxford Public Consultation
12. Faculty Permission issued by The Worshipful Alexander McGregor MA, Barrister, Chancellor of the Diocese and Official Principal of the Right Reverend Steven John Lindsey by Divine Permission Lord Bishop of Oxford

A supplier of traditional clay tiles phoned us recently and mentioned that he had just supplied an order of clay tiles for a church roof for a project which an architect had finally won planning permission for after - wait for it - 16 years.

By this measure, as Church Architects in the Diocese of Oxford, we have completed this project with extraordinary speed, this is no doubt due to the teams unwavering dedication to the project, and fantastic assistance we received from the church stewards, officers and congregation.

Congratulations to everyone involved.

FACULTY WON for St. Lawrence Church, West Wycombe.
