Listed Property Surveyors in your Town

In some locations of natural beauty, a conservation area is formed to ensure that the visual impact of any build or extension is carefully considered during the planning process. There are more stringent requirements throughout the planning process in such cases, and our conservation surveyor would be keen to guide you through the processes.

In areas of historical sensitivity, such as Barnet, a heritage statement may be required as part of the application process to map out the history of the site and the impact the proposals will have on it.

Our conservation surveyor is always available to give advice to our clients relating to their heritage statement.
