Heritage Statements of Significance: Historical research is fundamental to understanding the significance of a building or place. We undertake assessments of all types of heritage assets in order to determine the significance of assets and their setting. This research usually forms a key part of Supporting Planning and Heritage Statements.
Negotiations: We can undertake the necessary consultations with local amenity groups, national heritage bodies such as Historic England and local authority Conservation Officers to discuss and negotiate your proposals.
Appeals: We can provide Expert Witness Statements for heritage appeals. We have a proven track record of preparing Grounds of Appeal that have persuaded independent planning inspectors to overturn local planning authority decisions and grant planning and listed building consent.
Rebuttals: We can provide Heritage Statements to support or rebut proposals for statutory listing, local listing or designation/extension of a Conservation Area.
