Orchestrating practical conservation, sensitive change and finding practical viable uses are key to the long-term future of heritage assets. Listed Buildings, Scheduled Ancient Monuments and those within designated Conservation Areas require specific care and attention to ensure that a proposed development does not adversely affect their historic character, fabric and setting.

Proposed developments within a historic context often require listed building consent or other permission alongside planning permission.

Sensitivity to context and good judgement are imperative when a heritage asset forms part of a contemporary development proposal. At Smart Planning we make sure we understand the context of heritage assets and work proactively with Historic Buildings Officers and Conservation bodies to ensure the formulation of wise strategies that uphold the essence of any heritage asset.
