A little bit of history

“A big WELCOME and enjoy”

The word Fulham originates from Old English, with Fulla being a personal name, and hamm being land hemmed in by water or marsh, or a river-meadow. So Fulla’s hemmed-in land. It is spelled Fuleham in the 1066 Domesday Book. Parsons Green is a mainly residential district in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

The Green itself, which is roughly triangular, is bounded on two of its three sides by the New King’s Road section of the King’s Road, A308 road and Parsons Green Lane. The wider neighbourhood is bounded by the Harwood and Wandsworth Bridge Roads, A217 road to the East and Munster Road to the West, while the Fulham Road, A3219 road may be said to define its northern boundary. Its southern boundary is less clearly defined as it merges quickly and imperceptibly with the Peterborough estate and Hurlingham.


Why move to Parsons Green?

Fulham is a highly coveted place to live though perhaps a little less famous than its neighbour Chelsea. Transport links are as good as anywhere in London with the advantage of being on the right side of London for connections to Heathrow and access to the river. Our properties

can compete with any real estate hot spot in the world although Relocating here is never a bad idea and if you’re lucky enough to be in the market for one of our properties moving in the right direction. That doesn’t mean that everything in Fulham is super exclusive, we have a strong and proud

working class including our own Premiership football team (soccer if you’re American) our own brewery supplying Londoners for over 200 year and some of the best pubs, independent shops and market stalls to give you a real community spirit.

Ideal living

Parsons Green was once home to aristocratic Londoners, but today the population skews toward professionals and families who are buying homes from the older population. It’s still upscale and is a prime choice for those who want some quiet while remaining somewhat close to the City. It offers a lot of activities and amenities but maintains a close-knit village atmosphere.

Housing in the area is mostly large properties that have been converted into smaller homes and apartments, but you will still find single-family terraces. These are mostly Victorian and Edwardian style homes. There is new development in the area as well that has created more modern housing options.

Parsons Green has a good selection of cafes and restaurants, including the iconic White Horse pub, which dates back centuries. Another popular spot is the California-inspired Hally’s, which has a healthy breakfast and brunch menu.

Parsons Green offers a lot to do. The nearby Bishop’s Park offers plenty of green space, athletic fields, and a man-made beach, the neighbhorhood hosts annual events that bring the community together, and a weekly farmers’ market is held each Sunday. It’s also home to the London Theatre Workshop, a small theater that puts on cabaret, comedy, and music shows. The Eel Brook Pub is also quite famous for its innovative shows.

Planning & Building Control

Unsure which services you need?

If you are thinking of making changes to your property, you may need to apply for planning permission and / or Building Regulations approval. If you’re not sure which applications to make, please use the guidance below to help you to decide what you need to do.

Please note that many developments will require both.

What is planning?

Planning is the process of deciding whether a proposed development should go ahead or not. It uses national and local policies to consider the development in its context and may look at the impact of the work on neighbours and the wider community, existing architecture, the land, the layout, and existing or proposed infrastructure (such as drains, transport and schools).

You will probably need planning permission if your proposed development will do any of the following:

• create a new building, or change the use or appearance of an existing building

• affect the sunlight, privacy or outlook for neighbouring properties

• affect the nearby area with noise disturbance, smell or fumes

• work on or around listed buildings or any conservation areas

• affect traffic volumes, road safety or access

• change the density of development in an area

• use significantly different materials or finishes from nearby properties

• have an effect on existing trees


What is building control?

Building control applies national statutory regulations to ensure the structural quality of any building work, in areas such as safety, public health, accessibility, and the materials used. Most substantial building projects (such as an extension, knocking down walls or converting a garage or loft) will need Building Regulations approval.
