Tiffany Snowden is the owner of Blue Willow Heritage, having founded the company in 2021 following a decade of work in a variety of planning, heritage and built environment roles. Graduating from the University of Edinburgh with a BA in Archaeology, Tiffany first worked in heritage and conservation roles at Queen Mary University of London and the Royal Hospital Chelsea, helping to preserve and improve their collections and built estates respectively.
Tiffany then deepened her understanding of the heritage sector and the built environment as it relates to archaeology at Pre-Construct Archaeology and London-based architectural practice Donald Insall Associates, where she worked with high profile clients including the Crown Estates and Cadogan Estates on extremely sensitive heritage projects in central London.
Moving to North Yorkshire, Tiffany then worked with Solstice Heritage for four years on a wide variety of residential, commercial and public sector projects across Yorkshire, the North East and the Midlands. These included work as the project lead on the Darlington Local Plan, managing nine allocation sites; consultation and practical work in the production of Channel 4’s Great British Dig; and a comprehensive scope of re-development in Knaresborough in support of their local plan.
With years of practical experience and an in-depth knowledge of heritage as it pertains to the built environment and the planning system, Tiffany is an exceptional facilitator of even the most complex and sensitive heritage projects. Her particular abilities in managing stakeholders and working together with all of the other disciplines it takes to carry out a successful building, renovation or development project make her an asset to the planning and design teams at every stage of the process. As a fully accredited Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA), the highest grade of professional membership available, as well as being an elected member of the Association for Studies in the Conservation of Historic Buildings (ASCHB), she is committed to upholding a high level of professional and ethical standards in all aspects of her work.
