3 October 2017
The IHBC’s London Branch is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Civic Amenities Act 1967, which established Conservation Areas, by looking ahead against a ‘background of reduced local authority expenditure and continuing uncertainty over funding’, in our ‘Back to the Future’ conference on 3 October, in London’s Royal College of Physicians.
The conference will cover a wide range of issues, including:
- How are conservation areas perceived:
does expectation match reality?
- How can we protect their special character from inappropriate development?
- What is the potential for post-war designations and how to engage communities?
This conference will be of relevance to conservation officers and other heritage professionals, town planners, urban designers, engineers, surveyors, architects, and archaeologists and as usual, we intend the presentations to be of nationwide interest, not solely London-focused.
Once again the venue will be Sir Denys Lasdun’s Grade I listed Royal College of Physicians (1960–64); an award-winning conference venue.
