RTPI South West welcomes to you their CPD Seminar series for 2024. This is a HYBRID Seminar so you may opt to attend in-person or virtually. We hope this enables the event to be as inclusive as possible.

Why do we conserve historic buildings and places? What is their value to wider society, particularly in the context of climate change? With this seminar in conjunction with IHBC South West we explore keeping the past alive and reusing historic buildings with sympathetic design. Join our expert speakers and the heritage specialists with their practical advice on topics including: how we take account of ‘significance’ in the decision making process, and adapting historic buildings to combat climate change.

Why should you attend?

  • Find out more about historic Gloucester and its current and future conservation plans

  • Understand the impact of significance and the contribution made by setting

  • Hear more about the Planning Inspectorates role in decision making
  • Take part in a workshop and discussion on applying significance and the planning balance of harm vs public benefit
  • Hear the latest heritage provisions within the LURA, recent changes to the framework for planning and heritage in Wales and the latest case law.
  • Understand more about emerging policy and legal issues for climate and heritage
  • Consider the realities of climate change vulnerability and retrofit
  • Case Study: Retrofitting Listed Buildings in Bath and hear more about their Local Energy Advice Demonstrator

Please note that the programme is still in draft stage. We reserve the right to update and amend the programme accordingly. We will do our best to keep the event programme current and reactive to any key legislation or guidance changes.
