Heritage

Pegasus Group’s heritage specialists, act for private and public clients, advising widely in respect of heritage issues and providing specialist services to owners, custodians and developers with regards to historic buildings, historic landscapes and archaeology. This includes undertaking heritage assessments, assessing and articulating the significance of heritage assets, preparing impact assessments, providing heritage expert witness services at Public Inquiry and designing schemes of mitigation.

The historic environment is a key feature of this country’s rich and varied urban and rural landscape and includes designated heritage assets such as Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas, Scheduled Monuments and Registered Parks and Gardens as well as many non-designated heritage assets.

Our work focuses on problem solving and securing permission for development with added expertise in built heritage, historic landscapes and archaeology.
