If you are applying for consent for work to a Listed Building or a property in a Conservation Area, or doing so on behalf of a client, then we can provide a Heritage Statement, which will be essential for your application.
Heritage Statements detail how a development will impact on a ‘Heritage Asset’, with reference to relevant local, national and regional planning policies. A Heritage Statement is required for all applications affecting Listed Buildings, unlisted buildings in conservation areas, or ‘locally listed’ buildings, (often designated as ‘Buildings of Townscape Merit’ [BTM’s], or projects affecting known archaeological or certain other sensitive locations. A Heritage Statement is also required for applications affecting the setting of any of the above. Applications for demolition within conservation areas should also include the supporting evidence and justification required by para 133 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
