Heritage and Cultural Regeneration - London

Tuesday, 29 May 2018 at 9:30AM - 4:30PM
Etc venues, Bishopsgate Court, 4-12 Norton Folgate, London E1 6DQ, UK
RTPI Training

Course Aim

England has a wealth of heritage and archaeology and as a result, there is often an overlap with development and regeneration programmes. Undiscovered archaeology can often cause a risk to project programmes and budgets and the impact of local heritage on design can be challenging. This is a challenge to both planners and developers.

This masterclass will give you the tools and knowledge to properly deal with heritage and archaeology during the planning process in England.


Through a combination of expert trainer input, discussion and group work, you will:

  • Learn about legislation and policy governing the historic  environment in England
  • Gain insight into what is heritage, statutory and non-statutory assets
  • Understand the variety of assessments, including Statements of Significance and Impact Assessments
  • Discuss assessing heritage assets
