Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans

If you need to create or update a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan, biT can help.

Using a combination of desk-based research and site surveys, we’ll create a compelling document which thoroughly records your area’s heritage values and provides you with specific guidance on how best to manage it in the future.

Each Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan will contain:

  • Concise and informative descriptions of the area’s history and importance, allowing all stakeholders to understand and appreciate the area’s heritage significance;
  • Clear descriptions and photographs of key buildings, views, architectural and landscape features, setting out the area’s special historic character and appearance;
  • Map-based analysis, identifying character areas and significant features;
  • Identify areas where specific improvements could be made;
  • Recommendations for boundary revisions

Each Management Plan will contain:

  • Actionable advice on conserving and improving the Conservation Area which balances the needs of all stakeholders with the duty to protect heritage assets;
  • This may include recommendations for planning policies or Article 4 Directions, use of enforcement powers or further specific design guidance.

We can also help assess new areas being considered for Conservation Area designation and provide supplementary planning documents or guidance notes for businesses and homeowners to help guide their plans.

Appraisals and Management Plans will be tailored to your specific area and needs. Our team will be happy to chat with you and provide fee details.
