See What Listed Buildings Can Do
chartered town & country planning, energy & carbon consultants
One of the most difficult aspects involving listed buildings plans is the degree of surveyed detailing of measured scaled plans required in order to consider fully listed building consent proposals and Applications and Conservation Area Applications.
In an attempt to keep costs as low as possible we detail up to standard and beyond where additional description is required. Individual items proposed for change may at times be requested in our larger scale drawings.
The principles supporting proposed changes need to be considered most carefully in terms of their suitabilty to the 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 listed today is now most carefully controlled.
We also provide unlimited advice, liaison and services where necessary for regularisation and enforcement concerns affecting listed and other buildings giving you (pre)assessments and audits for your particular scales and levels of interests and 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 degree of influence from their owners.
Our concern at Civic is in being able to accommodate change to an acceptable degree.
The difficulty is, of course, always in the degree.
We look for underlying benefit in the resources involved and additional references of use, without creating adverse effects.
