Appraisals & Surveys

Heritage Impact Appraisals

The Nicholas Pearson Partnership have prepared a number of heritage impact appraisals for sensitive landscapes subject to development, including new visitor facilities.  We have helped the National Trust find affordable solutions for visitor car parks, including Kingston Lacy and Killerton.  We work closely with conservation architects teams for new facilities at key visitor attractions such as Cardiff Castle and the Bishop’s Palace, Wells.

Condition Surveys

We have worked with a number of teams to produce landscape condition surveys for English Heritage owned scheduled monuments across the South West, from Tintagel and Pendennis Castles to Old Sarum and Windmill Hill, as part of English Heritage’s Asset Management Plans.

Setting Studies

The setting of a designed landscape is often critical to its visual and historic significance.  We have prepared setting studies that have helped identify this setting through views analysis and Zone of Visual Influence projections to inform the planning process.
