2017 - Year in Review


In the beginning…………

2017 marked 14 years of trading for CMYK.  Since then the practice has grown from the original founding three Directors to a team of 15 Architects, Town Planners, Designers and Graphic Specialists.  We’re happy to say that 2017 has been another successful year for our busy practice.  During the last 12 months we have continued to work with some great clients on a large number of projects, as well as forming some exciting relationships with new clients.

The Numbers

In the last year we have secured planning approval for Full, Reserved Matters, and Outline applications on a number of projects, providing 1,798 dwellings.  These have been carried out for a number of clients including Taylor Wimpey, Riverdale Developments, Abbey New Homes, and Linden Homes.

In addition to our approvals, we currently have a number of projects that have been submitted and are awaiting determination.  These developments will total a further 419 dwellings for clients such as Kier living and Reside Developments Ltd.

We presently have nine live projects for a number of clients located around the South East, totalling around 1150 dwellings which are being worked on with a view towards submission in early 2018.

A number of large strategic Land Sites for various clients are currently being worked on, totalling around 3000 dwellings, plus many ongoing feasibility projects.

Town Planning

CMYK continue to be instructed as Town planning consultants on the Sherford New Community and achieved a S73 permission to amend the approved Design Code for the site with the Secretary of State agreeing not call the application in for determination.  We have recently been appointed as Town Planning consultants for the Bishops Stortford North Consortium which will involve seeking Reserved Matters permission for 1300 dwellings. We continue to promote key strategic site in Horsham, Woking and East Hampshire.  We successfully achieved planning permission for residential sites in South Northamptonshire, Central Bedfordshire, Mid Sussex, South Downs National Park, Tunbridge Wells, Aylesbury Vale, London Borough of Bexley and Milton Keynes.
