HOW CAN WE HELP?

 

 

  One of the most difficult aspects involving listed buildings plans is the degree of measured proportions and detailing in scaled drawings required in order for conservation officers to fully consider listed building consent Consent proposals and Applications and those for Conservation Area Applications - the consultancy provides all such plans. Contact us immediately as for advice and liaison.
 

  In an attempt to keep costs as low as possible we define up to where additional description is required. Individual items proposed for change or refurbishment may at times be officially required at larger scale drawings which we can duly provide.

 

  The principles supporting proposed changes need to be considered most carefully in terms of their suitabilty to the intrinsic historic character and components of the building and preparation is therefore a crucial item of the day.

 

  Change which would have seemed normal at the time to most of the builders of most buildings that are listed today is now most carefully controlled and such still requires consistent discussions with clients for case and conservation officers.

  We also provide unlimited advice, liaison and services where necessary for regularisation of local authority enforcement directives affecting listed and other buildings giving you audited (pre)assessments with representations for your particular scales and levels of interests with end to end project support.
 

  Perhaps it is useful to consider that some of our most prestigous Georgian terraces in places such as Bath were concerned almost exclusively with the public face of the buildings, their rear elevations given a substantial degree of licenced influence for change for their owners.
 

  Our concern at Civic is in being able to accommodate change to an acceptable degree.

The difficulty is, of course, largely in the degree.

 

  We look for underlying benefit for the resources involved and additional reference without creating adverse effects.

 

  Talk to us in confidence.
