Dr Charles Mynors is the leading authority on the extensive case law related to Curtilage Listings.

He has written extensively on the Law and Planning procedures with regards to the heritage and built environment. His book, ‘Changing Churches ; A Practical Guide To The Faculty System’, was revised in late 2017 and is now into its 5th Edition. It has become the ‘must have’ book for anyone involved with Listed Buildings and potential Planning disputes.

This highly detailed and engaging presentation will cover the topic of Curtilage Listings in considerable detail and will include the following, among much more..:

  • how to determine curtilage Listing
  • what is or isn’t a curtilage building
  • The Wednesbury Decision

He will be pleased to take questions from the floor.

This is a unique opportunity and not to be missed.
