Conservation plans are an essential part of restoring historic buildings and landscapes. They are needed, for instance, in applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund. We have prepared plans for the National Trust, English Heritage, the Home Office, the City of London, local authorities and private estates. Recent examples include Abney Park, Sissinghurst, RAF Barnham and Battle Abbey
Heritage impact and heritage significance
Heritage impact assessments and statements of significance are now a regular requirement for planning and grant-aid applications. We assess significance at all levels from whole properties to individual features. Examples include the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Wimpole estate. Recent heritage impact assessments include Shoreham Airport and Trent Park
Landscape management and landscape restoration
Landscape and woodland management is an essential part of our work, ranging from estate–wide plans such as for Polesden Lacey to individual sites such as Bockhanger Wood and RAF Barnham. Restoration work covers all stages up to contract supervision which includes Goodnestone Serpentine Walk, St Leonards Gardens and Dunorlan Park
Our experience of landscape character assessment and Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment includes acting for both local authorities and developers. Projects include Historic Routes in Oxfordshire and Areas of Special Historic Landscape Value in Surrey.
