We still have a major legacy of heritage assets (broadly, listed buildings and those in conservation areas) that are underused, derelict or, worse still, at risk.
Bringing these back into use requires not only physical rehabilitation but also a sound idea about how the asset will be used. In short, whether the use is for the community or commercial, saving a heritage asset will require a researched and soundly formed business plan.
Clare Consulting can help by providing balanced, independent advice on business plans, heritage issues, funding and option appraisal. We prepare grant funding bids and acts as development advisors where we combine project management of the development phase with a role as client-side advisor.
- Heritage Analysis
- Planning application and conservation design
- Marketing, training and representation
- Feasibility studies and business plans
The following are cases where our senior staff have headed consultancy teams or been directly instructed on heritage and conservation projects.
