Docking NorfolkNew Housing Development   

AHC was commissioned to provide design parameters for thirty new houses in a sensitive rural location in Norfolk adjacent to a Conservation Area. 
Football GroundFootball Ground Re-development  

We are currently advising on the design and layout of the refurbishment of one of England’s major football grounds. The scheme will involve the erection of 300 apartments, the development of which we are also advising. This site lies at the heart of the historic city, between three Conservation Areas, and adjacent to several listed buildings.
Christadelphian HallChristadelphian Hall, South-west of England

In this project we secured the conversion to residential use of a large, Non-conformist chapel of 1821, which had long been standing empty. The scheme retains the open, hall-like character of the building and preserves its special architectural and historic interest.

A Successful Scheme for 21 new houses

Working with a planning consultancy for a national developer we secured a successful scheme for 21 new houses just outside the Conservation Area of a West Sussex town. This involved working with the architects to design houses that were of a scale and density which reflected the town and also carefully incorporated local vernacular details. The scheme includes an element of affordable housing.  


Assisting the Private Owner of a Large Country House with Gaining Retrospective Listed Building Consent

This large historic building had undergone many unauthorised and unsympathetic alterations during its recent history. The new owners wanted to regularise the situation. AHC was able to work alongside the owners and Local Authority to mitigate the harm which had been caused to the original historic fabric. Repairs and alterations were carried out following our advice and retrospective consents were obtained, restoring peace of mind to the owners.


Feasibility Study for an Historic Farm Complex Outside Bristol Which Put Forward Development Opportunities Whilst Retaining the Integrity of the Site

This historic farm complex is located in a rural area outside Bristol. We provided a feasibility study outlining how the site could be developed to make the most of the listed farm buildings and to bring them back into use. Proposals were put forward which enabled the site to remain economically viable whilst protecting its historic integrity.



Appraisal of Proposed Sewage Plant Development Within a Conservation Area in Winchester

AHC provided advice to a water company concerning the siting of a proposed sewage plant within a Conservation Area and close to the curtilage of a Grade I listed church. After a detailed assessment of the Conservation Area and its sensitive historic buildings, the siting of the plant was eventually selected to be almost completely hidden from view.
