RAF Scampton Historic Characterisation
With some changes proposed for Scampton, including perhaps a significant influx of new staff and some major redevelopment, one approach in the past would be to offer protection to the most significant or vulnerable sites and buildings and simply allow development to occur elsewhere, away from the critical assets. However, in this case the principles of landscape characterisation were applied in such a way as to present guidance and opportunity for the site as a whole, while also recognising those characteristics that should be retained within any future redevelopment schemes. This report, by Atkins Heritage, was the first of its kind, and will assist Defence Estate and others to plan the future of this iconic Second World War and later RAF station, taking account of its historic character whilst realising the site’s potential for continuing use.
