Esconced in fascinating historical information & learning from the best

This month has seen me working on the National Grid gas holder portfolio across England. This comprises over 50 sites with the aim of assessing the development capacity of each individual site.

I have learnt an extraordinary amount about gas holders and the gas supply network that was established across England from the late 1800s which has been really interesting. I am also learning key skills required and available resources required when assessing development potential of any site across England.

Recently I have also been assisting with the preparation of a pre-application brochure alongside one of the best architectural practices in London. This has also been extremely valuable, as it is broadening my exposure to the key stages within the planning application process, with the pre-app stage is useful as it highlights any issues that may arise during the application process, which can then be resolved at an earlier stage minimising delays in the application.

Furthermore, I have been undertaking extensive research on a listed building in Queen Anne Street in Westminster. This has involved a visit to Westminster archives and exposure to historical information that is quite fascinating. This historical research is a prerequisite when working on projects with a heritage sensitive impact. I was then tasked with a trip to the planning department in Westminster Council to review the planning file for previous drawings establishing whether there have been any layout changes to the building.
