How many of England’s nearly 10,000 conservation areas are of C20th buildings? Should there be more C20 Conservation areas? And how should they be identified and managed?
C20 Society are running this workshop to mark publication of their new research into C20 conservation areas, (those which are formed of buildings dating from 1914). This research was funded by Historic England to mark the 50th anniversary last year of the legislation which introduced conservation areas, and shows just how underrepresented C20th heritage is in terms of conservation area designations.
The day will include a report on the research findings, practical group sessions on how to use conservation area designation to support the regeneration of C20th built heritage and site visits led by expert participants to local existing or potential conservation areas to promote discussion about the issues involved.
The workshop is aimed at all those who are involved in designating, working with or managing conservation areas including local authority conservation and planning officers, developers, civic societies and neighbourhood planning groups.
