Judicial Review / Public Inquiry
AHC is part of a team working alongside a private owner to protect a sensitive registered landscape and associated listed buildings. This appeal seeks to protect the site from an inappropriate, intense, agriculture proposal in rural Wales.
Buildings at Risk survey
Working for a local authority in the south of England, AHC was commissioned to carry out a review of the Buildings at Risk Register. The aim was to identify additional buildings at risk and note the change in condition of existing BARs.
Garden design based on historical research at a private house
This country house in the Forest of Dean is sixteenth-century in origin, and its owners were keen to develop an appropriate garden which could provide a suitable setting for the listed building. Working with the owners and the Local Authority we produced a garden design incorporating an historically-inspired layout with structural planting enlivened by modern features.
We have recently been engaged by two simultaneous clients: a country house owner and a parks trust who jointly own a significant seventeenth- and eighteenth-century historic landscape. Through our research we have advised on much-needed improvements and conservation to this interesting park. We have also advised on the means by which to reinforce the very necessary public / private separation within the grounds whilst being able to maintain the integrity of the landscape as a whole.
