Rebecca Burrows


Rebecca is an Associate and team leader for our heritage consultants in the northern region. She has extensive experience in supporting clients to unlock the potential of complex, multi-asset sites within the historic environment. She uses a heritage-led approach to managing change in a way that benefits her clients, justifying schemes through its public benefits. This approach is based on a proportionate understanding of significance to inform the capacity of a site to accommodate change as part of development or conservation work.

Rebecca’s heritage and planning consultancy skills allow her to support development proposals in compliance with local and national planning policy and legislation. She works with private, public and third sectors to achieve positive planning outcomes for people and places. She can support feasibility studies, development briefs, planning statements and impact assessments to achieve sustainable, healthy and beautiful places. She works closely with funding providers, statutory bodies and other stakeholders to ensure a well-supported and well-designed scheme.

Rebecca regularly provides training on the approach to assessing impact and of understanding significance, as well as beneficial new uses for historic sites. Rebecca is leading the heritage engagement strategy for the multi-million-pound refurbishment of Manchester Town Hall and has recently produced conservation management plans for the internationally significant post-war cathedrals at Coventry and Liverpool (Metropolitan).
