References & Clients

Squire Heritage Consulting develops strong and positive relationships with its clients helping to facilitate their objectives and aspirations in a considered and pragmatic manner.

Our clients vary from the owner of a single historic building to those who look after or own multiple buildings of varying types in the public or private sector. We engage our services for one-off projects with architects, surveyors or planning consultants who require additional expertise on larger schemes.

Recent contacts have said the following about Tristan Squire, the founder of SHC:

“I have known Tristan for several years – and he and Squire Heritage have assisted my practice most ably on a number of diverse projects. He has worked with me both in the London Boroughs for urban sites but also more rurally in the South East and West Country, where heritage planning and design matters require an independent mind and allied consultancy support. Tristan is a delight to work with – he’s thoughtful, responsive, thorough and flexible. I would recommend Squire Heritage highly, particularly where projects may benefit from a careful archival approach from the outset, ensuring emerging development schemes are steered in the right planning direction”.

(M D Washbourne, Partner Porta Planning LLP)

“As a Planning Consultant it is often helpful to call on the services of a reliable heritage specialist. Indeed it is only by lodging an appropriate report that planning and listed building consents are won. Tristan is a safe pair of hands when it comes to undertaking the necessary research. He is top for compiling high quality reports sufficient to address the demands of a planning authority.”

(Ian Coomber, Director, Absolute Planning)

“I have worked with Tristan on several central London schemes. He has always provided quick and thorough advice and he has helped find pragmatic solutions where heritage considerations have a bearing on a development. I also find his personable approach helps establish a constructive dialogue with local authority planning and heritage officers.”

(John Watson MRTPI, Director, J Watson Consulting Ltd)

“Tristan’s responsive and efficient approach to new projects has been backed-up by thorough, thoughtful and pragmatic analysis and reporting. The heritage implications for design can be clearly understood enabling us to create compelling arguments in support of renovation, refurbishment and extension ideas”.

(Guy Ramsden, Partner – Bidwells Architecture)

“We have relied on Tristan’s expert advice and expertise when dealing with complex planning applications on heritage assets. His proactive approach and depth of knowledge has been invaluable in securing planning permissions which would have otherwise proved difficult. We have a strong ongoing working relationship and would happily recommend his services.”

(Patrick Owens, Zulu Fish)

“We appointed Tristan Squire to advise on our planning application for a new beach house in Southwold. The building had a local listing and is located in a conservation area and an area of outstanding natural beauty. So, the planning process was arduous, from initial application, refusal, appeal and planning resubmission. Thankfully, Tristan advised at all stages of the process. His strong local knowledge, independent, objective and practical advice together with a detailed understanding of planning regulation was invaluable in enabling us to gain approval to build in such a sensitive location.”

(Anna Shanley Property)

“Our experience with Tristan was very positive. He is very competent in his field and our dealings with him were very professional. As a result of his input in our project, we were able to successfully obtain listed buildings consent for our project. We would highly recommend Tristan and would definitely use him again!”
