Historic Landscape Restoration
Our team has an enviable track record in conservation management planning, restoration and access improvements in English Heritage Registered Historic Parks and Gardens, cemeteries and urban parks.
Working with our in-house heritage team we provide advice on heritage landscapes including country houses/estates, monastic landscapes and Scheduled Ancient Monument sites ensuring a well integrated approach to conservation management planning.
The long term sustainability of heritage sites is a key aspect of our design philosophy. We achieve this through extensive historical, cultural and social research and by working closely with our expert historic landscape consultants. We undertake site surveys to inform sensitive design, balancing traditional and contemporary elements and heritage, recreational and ecological value. This ensures development of sensitively implemented, effective, high quality and achievable long-term management plans.
