No Job Too Big or Too Small

When considering who to choose to design your plans, the first consideration is often the size of the project. Large projects, ‘new-builds’ or small home improvements – we cover ALL aspects of residential building work and regardless of size, we aim to provide the best service of the highest quality -  with that level of design flair and imagination that we’re known for!

We will show you the best use of your available space and how to use light and reflection to enhance this.

We can help you consider what you want out of your project and how your requirements may change in the future.

legislation and regulations...

We are familiar with the many requirements of your local planning authority and can help you to consider the possible limitations of the existing building or site, and other regulatory requirements. 

We will be able to help you with the all-important legislative issues surrounding your project, such as planning permission and building regulations, working within permitted development and how to navigate through conservational issues, ie. obtaining the necessary reports when your home is in a protected area.

If you live in a historic building, you may be aware of further requirements and permissions that will need to be taken into consideration; ie. You may need ‘Listed Building Consent’ for some internal structural works. We would be pleased to help you with this. 

Let's be Eco-friendly...

Would you like to discuss ecological issues? Through close discussion, we can help you to gain insight into the best ecological use of materials, the environmental factors involved in using them – and how to reduce your carbon footprint - all important considerations in today’s world. We will try to help you to carry out the project using sustainable methods to reduce the impact on the environment.

about us...

who are we?

,Architectural Designer & Director

My name is Chris and I work with my wife, Shell and our family, either in our office in the Reigate area or at home, near Haslemere, in the heart of Surrey. 

We are a small architectural firm who prefer to offer a more personal approach to our clients. 

We have 30 years’ experience specialising in residential architectural design work. 

We offer a complete architectural service, from 'inception and the design brief', working closely with you through the design process, and finally obtaining statutory approvals - such as planning permission and building regulation approval, on your behalf.

Please feel free to call for a chat to explain your building project ideas and ask any questions - We will be happy to help. 

We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

 Chris Perry

SLS PLANS Architectural Services, Surrey

where are we?

We basically cover most of the South East, particularly West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. We live in Fernhurst, a charming village nestled between Haslemere and Midhurst, and we are based in the Redhill area.  We have a lot of experience with the various planning authorities in the Surrey and Hampshire area, as well as Sussex, where we lived for many years.
If you live further afield? Because the majority of our design and planning work is digital, we are able to visit you and design your plans, wherever we are, so please get in touch, we'd love to help, wherever you live!

More about the services we offer...

We also offer a comprehensive range of supplementary services, as required, including PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES,  detailed build costs, structural calculations, SAP calculations and specialist reports as required by the local authority to obtain the relevant approvals.

More about the Project Management Service:
We would liaise between you and the builders (and contractors) to undertake the work, source and provide materials at cost price, and tackle any issues that may arise – taking much of the stress away from you, so that you can relax and enjoy watching your dream build become a reality.

in a nutshell...

initial consultation... hearing your ideas and explaining our services

  • EXTENSIONS, LOFT/GARAGE CONVERSIONS, NEW BUILDS/SIMPLE PORCHES - As well as listening carefully to your wonderful ideas (and we have some great ideas ourselves if you need them,) and offering you our experienced feedback as architectural professionals,  we will discuss with you the services you may need, your options in detail and the process involved in us producing your drawings. We will also explain how we can help you with PLANNING APPLICATIONS, BUILDING REGULATIONS and any necessary WRITTEN CORRESPONDENCE (ie. party wall letters, etc).
  • REMODELLING SERVICE - If it's an inside 'move around' you're looking for in order to make the most of your living space, we can help with the interior design to remodel your home - Many people are choosing to open up their homes by taking partition walls down, or they may want to reposition a room they have, ie. Move and extend their kitchen or bathroom to another area of the house…
  • Following the visit to your home, we will prepare an OVERVIEW and WRITTEN QUOTE of the work you need carrying out and email it to you. This written version will be exactly as discussed at the initial consultation. The letter will remind you of what you require, exactly what services we would provide and what costs are involved. It may also help prevent any misunderstandings at a later stage.

  • We will carry out the Full Measured Survey – at your home. This usually only takes a few hours to complete.
  •  We will create your building design.
  • We will complete and submit a PLANNING PERMISSION application, if you need one.
  •  We will sort out the BUILDING REGULATION approvals.
  • If you need help with a PARTY WALL ISSUE, we can help you with that and write all the necessary letters for you.
  • Once the design is complete, you will probably need a STRUCTURAL ENGINEER to carry out any necessary structural calculations. We have our own preferred and trusted team of Structural Engineers that we use, but we are more than happy if you prefer to use your own.
  • We also offer our clients a comprehensive Project Management Service to oversee the building aspect of your project, where we would liaise between you and the builders (and contractors) to undertake the work, source and provide materials at cost price, and tackle any issues that may arise – taking much of the stress away from you, so that you can relax and enjoy watching your dream build become a reality.


A small family firm with a huge amount of awe-inspiring ideas and buckets of talent!

We were contacted within an hour from posting ad and the response was immediate – the lady who called us was friendly, professional and easy to talk to. She arranged a visit for the next day and Chris, who came to talk to us, quickly put us at ease. He listened carefully to our ideas and suggested how we could use the space to our best advantage. He had some great ideas and proposed something completely new that we hadn’t thought of. His professional feedback was really useful and we could see that he knew his stuff. Having experience of the area and this particular council was really important to us and we wanted someone local, so with all this considered, we decided to go ahead with him straight away. Having accepted his quote, we had the letter of Engagement sent through by email the same day and the Full Measured Survey booked in for that weekend – it was all very efficient and happened very quick, which was great!

The planning design process has been an exciting experience so far and we have worked closely with Chris, who has been very patient and determined to make sure we were happy with the planning design. (We are!)

We were also keen to have the ‘Costing service’ offered to us to help us with our budget… We have to say, the whole experience has been excellent and we know that we’re in safe hands – it has taken a lot of the stress out of it all and it’s great to have a professional, experienced team on our side, who are approachable and so helpful. (We have also decided to have them project manage the building work too!)

Linda and Kate, West Horsley

SLS PLANS are friendly and helpful. They listen to client ideas and are keen to give useful feedback where needed, offering suggestion where they feel necessary. As well as designing a large detached home (with several bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms) and preparing drawings for planning, they also prepared Building Regulation drawings for issuing to the builders for the building process. We were successful in our planning application and feel that this was largely due to the drawings that Chris created. We would definitely use SLS Plans for a future project.

Louise & David Palmer, Guildford, Surrey

We found SLS Plans friendly and easy to work with. We had contact from you the same day we made the enquiry on the  website. You were very professional and you arranged an appointment for the next day. You offered us some great ideas, applied no pressure at all and then followed up with a written quote and letter the next day. The survey was arranged quickly and the design work was very good. Overall, your service was excellent. We are pleased we decided to use you to draw up our extension designs and to deal with the planning applications. Thank you, we would definitely recommend your services to others.

Peter H, Horley, Surrey

sls pLANS - Very professional and prompt replies, incredibly helpful and proactive responses - EXCELLENT DESIGNS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE…

We were happy with the response from SLS PLANS and they gave us good advice concerning our proposed property extension. Chris met up with us the following day, and offered a competitive quote and good ideas. When we confirmed we wanted to go ahead, he arranged a date for the survey and started the project design straight away. This was closely followed by the planning application process. We are very happy with the services given and that planning was passed with no problem.

M. Smith, Crawley

And finally...

We would kindly ask all of you lovely people who we visit and quote for or who engage our services to take a moment and provide us with some feedback on how well we’ve done and your experience of SLS Plans. We sincerely hope it has been a good one!

We want to make sure that we’re offering the best service that we can and are always seeking to improve where possible… you, as the clients, really help us (& future clients) with your kind comments and valuable feedback.

We offer an extensive and exciting range of designer architectural services which we are proud of and we look forward to hearing from you to see where we can help your architectural dreams come true, however large or small, we cover it all!

would definitely recommend!

We were contacted by this company within an hour and they were professional and friendly from start to finish. We definitely recommend them. We were very pleased with the designs from SLS PLANS Architectural Services, we got planning permission and we are now building our extension!


We are now using the services of SLS PLANS - who were both professional and helpful and we were extremely pleased with their designs.

Michelle & Philip S, Tadworth, Surrey

Great response and action / Very good, prompt service

Quote competitive compared to others / Very professional and efficient

We live in a Grade 2 Listed house and used S L S Plans to design and submit an application for Listed Building Consent for some internal structural works.

Chris was very efficient and knowledgeable. Needless to say we were granted the Listed Building Consent without even a single condition (meaning they didn't ask for anything to be changed!). Thanks

very pleased with sls services

They were extremely professional, knowledgeable and efficient and made each step of the process incredibly straight forward and seamless. Chris's ideas were innovative and attractive, taking into account the needs of our family. We were provided with several options for designs and our input was welcomed. Chris completed the planning permission application and it was successful. He took care of the structural calculations with an excellent Structural Engineering firm he uses. SLS Plans have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we would wholeheartedly recommend their services.
