WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

As a planning consultant it is very important to me to obtain prompt, thorough and reliable heritage advice at an early stage in potential development projects, to aid our chances of securing planning permission, and this is exactly what Solstice Heritage delivers”.

Charlotte Stainton MRTPI, Stainton Planning.

Solstice Heritage have assisted us with general advice, site meetings, heritage and archaeological reports, written appeal statements and provided an expert witness at appeal, for various development projects. Their advice has always been clear, helpful and honest and I would have no hesitation in recommending Solstice Heritage to anyone who requires a heritage consultant”.

Charlotte Stainton MRTPI, Stainton Planning.

The swift response to all requests has been immensely helpful and the quality of the work and professional presentation has been excellent”.

Tim Harrison, Director, BHD Partnership.

Chris has the ability to make the team on site feel comfortable and willing to work with him; his contact with the Planning Authorities and dealing with their archaeologists on a professional level has been extremely beneficial, and above all our mutual client has been highly satisfied with the work carried out by Solstice Heritage”.

Tim Harrison, Director, BHD Partnership.

We needed to locate and appoint a professional, northern-based archaeologist quickly with experience of working on older buildings in a rural location. Chris Scott of Solstice Heritage filled all of these requirements and more. We have been highly delighted with his positive can-do approach”.

Tim Harrison, Director, BHD Partnership.

We have worked with both Chris and Jim of Solstice Heritage on a wide range of different projects, ranging from the sensitive development of important listed buildings, to matters involving other heritage implications such as archaeology and conservation areas”.

Maria Ferguson BA(Hons) Dip TP, MRTPI – Director, MF Planning Ltd

I can happily recommend Solstice Heritage to anyone who requires specialist advice and assistance on any heritage matters, and particularly where such advice is key to the development succeeding in obtaining planning permission”.

The Solstice Heritage [consultancy and assessment document] clearly captures the role the site plays in the conservation area and the setting of assets, the local design cues and details which should be incorporated to deliver a successful scheme and the impact the development will have.

Conservation Officer, comments in relation to a site for which pre-application advice (prior to Solstice’s involvement in the scheme) had been very unfavourable.

Overall, this proposal now offers real opportunities to deliver a development which will not only provide a sense of place but will be a positive enhancement to the conservation area and the setting of other assets.
