Townscape in Focus: Challenges and Opportunities

Heritage protection and the principles of conservation are at the heart of new legislation to manage the historic built environment. This conference examines the new agendas and the skills and tools which are essential to build on heritage assets for a sustainable future.

A review of 'Townscape in Trouble' and research into the use of Article 4 Directions will be the starting point of this event which will also include input from English Heritage and DCMS on the implications of the Heritage Protection Bill for practitioners.

The Lichfield case study offers a microcosm of all of the topics under discussion and an opportunity for discussion in order to formulate a way forward for the Forum and its members.
