Heritage Conservation.

Conservation is often described as 'the process of managing change'. We believe that good architectural conservation manages changes to historic buildings and other 'heritage assets' in a manner which protects and responds to their special and unique characteristics as well as their setting and historical context.

We are experienced in assessing the cultural significance and heritage values of listed buildings and other designated and non-designated heritage assets, including properties in Conservation Areas, in the manner now required by the government's new National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

A solid understanding of the specific factors that contribute to an asset's significance underpins the design process- to ensure that any new works protect or enhance its particular heritage values.


By following recognised conservation principles and techniques, including those set out by English Heritage in their 2008 publication ''Conservation Principles, Policies and Guidance', and working closely with the local authority Conservation and Planning Officers we regularly help clients to obtain the necessary planning and building regulations consents to undertake refurbishment, alteration and extension works to listed buildings and other historically sensitive properties- including those within Conservation Areas or of traditional vernacular construction.
