Conservation Management Plans (CMP) are useful documents which enable the proper maintenance and management of historic buildings and are often needed as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant process. They cover a range of topics, such as a historic analysis of the evolution of the building, a statement of significance, options appraisals for future works, action and management plans, as well as a gazetteer to explain the significance and sensitivity to change for each individual room. JS Conservation Management &Town Planning can taylor the Conservation Management Plan to your needs. Below are a selection of CMP’s completed by JS Conservation Management & Town Planning
Aston Hall Estate, Birmingham
This project was undertaken on behalf of the Birmingham Museums Trust. Aston Hall is a Grade I Jacobean country house and estate which includes its grounds (registered park and garden) and estate buildings (also listed). The house has an amazing history, having been garrisoned during the Civil War and having had Charles I stay over as a guest! One of the most amazing long rooms one will see with a grand stair case still with damage from a canon ball during the civil war battles. The CMP for Aston Hall explored the significance of the hall, estate buildings and the grounds in order to guide further conservation of the building and also look at how the building can be used and better conserved for many generations to come.
St Laurence Church, Ludlow
This project was on behalf of the Church of England, and involved the writing of a Conservation Management Plan to support a Phase 1 bid for the Heritage Lottery Fund. St. Laurence Church is a Grade I listed building and has undergone many changes throughout its 800 year history. The church has an amazing collection of medieval stained glass and 15th Century misericords and is within the top 20 most visited free tourist attractions in the West Midlands. The Church is now undergoing some changes to bring it into the 21st Century and it is hoped that a successful Heritage Lottery bid will support this important building to play a strong role within the community.
Hereford Library & Museum, Hereford
This project was for Herefordshire Council in order to support a bid for Heritage Lottery Funding. The library and museum is Grade II listed and was constructed in 1874, with a later extension in 1912. The main facade presents a fine example of the anglicised Venetian Gothic style and contains a unique example of a 19th Century interior of the Woolhope Naturalist Field Club. The report detailed an assessment of the significance of the building, as well as an options appraisal in order to look at ways the building could be better utilised in order to provide better access for the disabled, fire safety, better movement and utilisation of services.
