This Conference, sponsored by FTB, will be our first face to face event since the start of the pandemic. It will be held at Hillsborough Castle and will be exploring the importance of the built heritage and how planning can support the historic environment. Promotion of cross-departmental and cross-professional collaboration is a cornerstone of the event.
