A London architect has been fined £2,000 by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) for giving poor planning advice and causing undue delay on an extension project.

Toyin Adetola Oduse, an architect with SE2 Creative Ltd, was ruled to have failed to warn a client when they needed planning permission, which delayed their project for over two years.
