What are the climate change challenges, London specifically, is facing in an historic environment context?

Join us on this webinar to hear case studies about how London is currently protecting and enhancing the historic environment, whilst mitigating climate change through the use of solar panels and ground source heat pumps.


  • Connie Davis, Historic England - Chair
  • Sarah Buckingham, Sustainable Design & Heritage Team Leader - Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea
  • Katie Parsons, Planning Advisor specialising in sustainable heritage - Historic England
  • Adam Williams, Historic Buildings Surveyor - Savills


Katie Parsons:

  • A presentation on the role historic buildings can play in the challenge facing the built environment to reach net zero and deal with climate change, the main risks to heritage and to climate change through retrofit, and advise on approaches that can be taken to help positive decisions be made.

Sarah Buckingham:

  • A thorough case study of the Borough’s approach to greening and retrofitting and in particular how Local Listed Building Consent Orders (LLBCO) can be used proactively to grant consent for works to mitigate the effects of climate change e.g. the erection of solar PV panels and other solar thermal equipment.

Adam Williams:

  • A private sector review of how a fabric first approach can successfully be adopted for historic buildings in London, assessing the asset in its existing state before introducing the “energy hierarchy” of retrofitting. This will look at the easy wins and cost effective solutions.
