For many developments, gaining planning permission or listed building consent is often necessary, and providing a Design and Access Statement or Heritage Statement to go with your application can go a long way in helping your planning application get approval.
Design and Access Statements help you demonstrate how your development is going to fit in with the existing surroundings, show the significance of the heritage assets and verify the impact of your development on the area.
If your development impacts a heritage asset, such as a listed building or conservation area, you will need to carry out a Heritage Assessment with your application. This assessment must describe the significance of the heritage asset and assess the potential impact of your proposed development.
