Heritage issues, involving designated heritage assets such as Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas, are a regular feature of the planning process and the impact of development on such features requires special consideration. The historic environment is an important component that links the past to the present and its preservation and enhancement is vital to allow future generations to enjoy these assets.
We firmly believe our built heritage deserves protection and conservation, and whilst this could be a constraint on development, it can also prove to be an opportunity. Specialist advice can help you strike the important balance of protecting your historic building whilst achieving your development goals.
Our consultants work with clients to guide them step by step through the often-complex process of achieving planning and listed building consent. Our work often includes initial feasibility advice, heritage appraisals, conservation area assessments and negotiation with heritage officials and local interest groups.
