The UK Homes & Communities Agency and English Heritage launched their first joint ‘How to’ guide last week, outlining a new development-led approach to masterplanning which advocates assessing the historic character of a site at the earliest stages of redevelopment. Agency chairman Robert Napier said: ‘This important collaboration between the agency & English Heritage makes a major contribution to how we masterplan & regenerate strategic sites, assisting us in our objective of helping deliver sustainable communities across England. This is set to transform the way sites are redeveloped.”
The guide, Capitalising on the inherited landscape – an introduction to historic characterisation for masterplanning, is the product of a joint pilot project between the 2 agencies.
