Our specialists have the skills to advise on heritage significance and the experience to find practical solutions in the development context, whether Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas, World Heritage Sites or Registered Parks & Gardens.
How we can help you:
The value assigned to heritage assets has become increasingly important in recent years, more so with the publication of PPS5 Planning for the Historic Environment in 2010 and the draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
Our specialists have a wide range of experience in negotiating with Conservation Officers, English Heritage and conservation lobbying groups, and they also have access to a network of technical specialists within the company whose skills can be called upon as appropriate.
We help to define the historic value of the asset, and then work to identify the potential for enhanced management or ‘place-shaping’. Our team has the skills to ensure that heritage interests are properly recognised and managed, with experience ranging from a single unlisted building in a Conservation Area to a complex group of listed buildings in an urban context.
