Bidwells was instructed to provide a heritage statement to support applications for Listed Building Consent and Advertisement Consent for two banner advertisements (8m x 1.5m) to celebrate the bicentenary of the Institute of Civil Engineering upon their impressive headquarters.
Two previous applications for advertisements had been withdrawn following resistance from Westminster City Council.
The application has been agreed for a temporary period of one year.
What we did
Provided a Heritage Statement which clarified the heritage value of the Grade II Listed building and the Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square Conservation Area
Assessed the impact of the proposed banners on the significance of the Listed building and conservation area
Listed Building Consent and Advertisement Consent were granted
Bidwells’ heritage statement helped to overcome resistance from Westminster City Council’s Conservation Officers
