Many projects have to contend with more than just planning laws and building regulations.

This client’s house was built in 1730 in the Spitalfields area of London, which is also the home of a vibrant market that flourishes to this day.

The house sits at the heart of a conservation area, and in addition to being Grade II* listed our client’s property was subject to controlling covenants by the Spitalfields Trust.

So as well as navigating a route through local planning, Aylesford managed negotiations with conservation bodies and English Heritage. We also appointed a professional team with each member chosen for their long experience and expertise in historic buildings and the demands they bring.

The team then worked up sensitive and detailed proposals to bring about a full restoration of this important 18th century property.
