We understand and acknowledge that the best solutions in heritage development are often found through collaboration and working in partnership.

Strong and mutually beneficial partnerships are the centre of City & Country’s success, as by working together we have devised exciting and often unconventional solutions for our complex heritage sites.


"Everyone knows that Edinburgh is one of the finest built environments in the world, and our historic buildings are one of our most precious of assets. I am delighted to know that a company such as City & Country is involved with Donaldson’s in its first Scottish project. I have no doubt that any plans will be rightly scrutinised by those involved in the planning process but, that said, I do think that it can only be good to bring together those with specialist heritage expertise in the redevelopment of one of the UK’s very finest buildings. By doing so, hopefully we can ensure that many more of our best buildings can be used by, and preserved for, future generations."

"For the trust, it has taken five long years to reach this point but we are now delighted to be working alongside City & Country to make our vision a reality. In partnership together, we can do real justice to Bentley Priory's rich history for the benefit of future generations."

Air Chief Marshal, Sir Brian Burridge

“The task of restoring and redeveloping King Edward VII Estate was an extremely sensitive and challenging brief that demanded skilled heritage experts. Having given planning permission to City & Country we have been thrilled with the outcome. We have been in constant communication throughout the project and the company has demonstrated a thorough understanding and appreciation of the needs of the buildings, the local community and the wider area. It has been a pleasure to work together, and the Estate now has a sustainable and exciting future.”
