Services for developers
If you are working with a listed building or within a conservation area, you will benefit from working with a heritage specialist. I speak the language of the conservation officer, so I can mediate between their concerns and your need to build your proposal.
My expertise increases your chances to achieve planning permission, with advice and reports that strengthen your planning application.
Heritage Statement Package
As per NPPF Art. 194, a Heritage Statement is required in applications for buildings protected under the national policy. Before granting consent, the local authority must understand your property’s heritage significance.
A Heritage Statement provides the history of your building and its context. It establishes its historical, cultural, aesthetic, architectural, or evidential value to assess its heritage significance.
The report will include a Heritage Impact Assessment. This analyses the potential effect of the proposed works on the building’s significance and its area.
Heritage Risk Assessment
Do you know if the conservation officer will accept your proposal?
Historic Building studio will analyse your proposal and assess its level of risk to achieve planning permission.
The report will propose alternative solutions considering the building’s heritage significance.
