Heritage Assets are wide ranging and can include, for example, designated and nondesignated buildings, structures, buried remains and defined areas. We have considerable experience in dealing with the sensitivity of heritage assets and have secured planning permission and relevant listed building / conservation area consents for major tourist attractions including the £120 million redevelopment of the Grade I and Grade II listed Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres in Stratford-upon-Avon through to a more domestic scale including the conversion of listed chapels, schools and mills to sensitively designed, modern residential accommodation.

Williams Gallagher regularly work in historically sensitive areas to deliver mixed-use town centre regeneration projects. We therefore understand the importance of listed buildings and conservation areas including their settings. As an example, Matthew worked on successfully delivering planning permission and conservation area consent for the redevelopment of the Riverside Mall in Shrewsbury to create a new 500,000 sqft shopping centre in the heart of the town. The project was undertaken within a conservation area and the setting of over sixty listed buildings.
