Heritage Led Regeneration

Tuesday, 26 April 2016 at 1:00PM - 4:30PM
Central Hall, Alice St, Keighley, West Yorkshire BD21 3JD
RTPI Yorkshire

Following on from the 2015 programme where local authorities showcased their planning achievements in selected towns and cities, in this year's RTPI Yorkshire low cost seminar programme we will be working with planning consultancies and local authorities in some of the smaller towns within Yorkshire. We will assess what has happened to the place over the last 50 years, what has worked there, whilst also looking forward to the future.

Our second Seminar in the 2016 Programme is in Keighley.

Heritage has often been seen as a barrier to development, and often a barrier to regeneration. A myth of difficult buildings with high build costs has resulted in a negative image being applied to heritage assets. The Keighley Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) has gone a long way to busting that myth through the delivery of various excellent development projects, which have enhanced the built environment and economic prosperity of the market town. Heritage has very much been the driving force behind the regeneration of Keighley. YPS Keighley

There are a limited number of free places available for full time students and Planning Aid volunteers. If you are an RTPI member please book online below, if not please contact
