    Breathing new life into Victorian Villas

    The Elms is a detached Grade II listed Victorian villa in Ormskirk, West Lancashire, UK, in the town centre’s conservation area. The developer submitted planning applications to convert the villa into luxury student accommodation by using some of the existing modern buildings and replacing others with new, purpose-built buildings. RSK worked with the conservation officer and Historic England to ensure the property was converted with respect for the listed building and adjacent listed buildings, including a nearby magistrates’ court.

    The National Planning Policy Framework requires developers to submit a statement detailing the significance of heritage assets in the site, their contribution to the area and an assessment of the potential development impact to the local planning authority before an application is determined. Through RSK’s consultations with architects, conservation officers and Historic England, the scale of development appropriate for the site was swiftly agreed.

    RSK conducted site-based and documentary research. From this, it produced a heritage statement documenting the significance of the listed building and conservation area. The heritage statement permitted the demolition of a modern existing outrigger without damaging the villa.
