Name and origin
The name relates to the famous Abbey — ‘mynster’ being Old English for a church. The ‘West’ part simply denotes it as west of the ancient City, and its great church of St Paul. In Anglo Saxon and early Norman times, the area was known as Torneia or Thorney Island, for an islet of that character, upon which the abbey and Palace of Westminster are built. [Londonist.com]
Westminster planning department
You will probably need planning permission if you want to build something new, make a major change to your home – e.g. building an extension, or change the use of your property. There are different rules depending on what you want to do and the relevant planning policy that applies to your property. At GOAStudio we have a proud record of dealing with the local authority planners and building control inspectors and we are on hand to assist with your application and successfully handle every stage of your project.

At GOAStudio we specialise in well-designed home extensions, intelligent remodelling of houses and flats, and in providing full architectural services for residential projects. Our architectural team aims to provide a friendly and professional service and our approach is based on fully considering the particular aspects of each scheme we are asked to design, while at the same time looking for a creative way to allow our clients instil their own unique stamp on what we do and how we do it. George Omalianakis is an award winning chartered architect with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and he carries professional indemnity insurance for the benefit of his clients.
