This will be a comprehensive update on heritage hot topics, including climate change adaptations following the (draft) publication of the new Historic England guidance, along with LURB and NPPF implications. We will also cover the tricky areas of curtilage; setting; enforcement; non-designated assets; and good design in relationship to heritage. The consideration of minimising harm will be a theme throughout all presentations, with practical tips offered. Speakers will include conservation officers, Historic England, private sector technical specialists, and architects.
