Plymouth Palmerston Forts Study

We commissioned URS/Scott Wilson to carry out a strategic review of Plymouth's Palmerston Fortifications, especially the northern fortifications and to prepare action plans to address any conservation and management issues identified.

The terms of reference and scope of the study are outlined in the brief for consultants, with the aim to develop a clear strategy for securing the future for Plymouth's Northern Palmerston Fortifications, in the context of the wider ring of contemporary fortifications which surround the city.

In addition, it's intended that the study inform planning and conservation policy and proposals for the areas in which the forts sit. In particular, it's to be used to inform emerging Local Development Framework documents.
