Historic Landscape Survey & Restoration

Tim Reid is an experienced conservation landscape architect, with his professional experience underscored by a bachelor degree in Medieval Studies. Urban Wilderness provide our clients with a fully integrated design solution, offering historic landscape surveys, restoration masterplanning, and detailed design as well as grant application and draw-down services. Many grant funding bodies provide a useful resource for restoration and ongoing maintenance and management. The Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage, Historic Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage are all available for advice and offer grant funding. We can help you successfully negotiate often complex and time-consuming processes associated with grant funding applications, undertake the design work and project manage the implementation of restoration works.

Rural & Estate Design and Management Planning

We provide a range of services which can help you manage and develop your estate in an economical and profitable way. Our service should save you money, with our specialist consultancy providing the tools to optimise revenue, grow the rural economy, and develop sustainable / cost‐effective practices to help you manage your estate and landscape assets effectively. Our services include consultancy to promote estate land for housing development, planning for renewable energy production, restoration of historic designed landscapes and other diversification options. As professional members of Scottish Land and Estates, we are in regular contact with the rural community. Our extensive expertise in countryside management, historic landscape restoration, residential land promotion and renewable energy projects keeps our staff up to date with rural affairs and aware of the constraints and opportunities currently facing UK landowners. We routinely work with project ecologists to ensure that our management plans are capable of achieving a suitable BREEAM accreditation. We recently secured planning permission for the farm diversification of Applegarth Farm in Hampshire to include a new cookery school, Rural Enterprise Centre and play barn.

Landscape / Public Art Strategies and Design Coding

Landscape strategies examine complex and often disparate sites, and propose targeted interventions aimed at realising each site's potential for public amenity, biodiversity, access, connectivity, screening and land / asset value. Consultation is a key component to each strategy, allowing ideas to be tested and rationalised in a collaborative, and transparent way. Our approach is to balance qualitative design with quantitative analysis. We apply this same rigor to the production of public art strategies. Public art can often be delivered in an ad hoc, reactionary way which can lead to criticism and sometimes to vandalism or public rejection. Urban Wilderness work with private clients and Local Authorities to develop site based, city wide or regional arts strategies, which seek to deliver a holistic approach to public art. We engage stakeholders and local people within the process in order to embody a consensual sense of ownership and foster an interest in public art. Our art strategies are fully costed and clearly set out the steps undertaken from consultation and site identification to, commissioning and implementation. Urban Wilderness offer post strategy services from tendering arts commissions to working with the artists regarding cost management and implementation.

“Urban Wilderness was integral to the success of the three major planning applications at Keele University. It was a pleasure to work with them – Nathan and Chris showed understanding of the built and natural landscape combined with commercial nous throughout. We haven’t hesitated in recommending their services since.” Matthew Hard, - Associate, Indigo Planning (2018)
