3 FOREWORD Another year on and another Yearbook, the institute’s ultimate reference guide to who and what we are. This year sees a few subtle changes in the organisation – me for one. My name’s Trefor, and I’m a volunteer. Sorry, it’s a creaky old cliché, but I really don’t know how there was UJNF UP EP B GVMM UJNF KPC CFGPSF * retired. Immersing oneself in family life again is a joy but it’s hard to say no to requests to do or be on this or that and I haven’t been too successful at doing it. But the icing on the cake is the immense honour and privilege of becoming your president. If you are a regular reader of IHBC NewsBlogs you will have noticed more interesting reshu#ing within the hierarchy. Eddie Booth has segued neatly from president to secretary, a role vacated by the indefatigable Richard Morrice who takes up the treasurer’s portfolio from Michael Knights, retiring after a decade of sterling service to Council. And, as I write, another MPOH TUBOEJOH TFOJPS NFNCFS PG Council, John Preston is standing down as education secretary after $% years of unremitting productivity. One shouldn’t forget the unsung heroes who keep our regional branches the mainstay of the approach to the issues facing the historic environment. Remarkably, virtually all of our activity is the result of voluntary e"ort – in our own interests maybe, but I think most of us would agree that it is in the national interest too. Our working lives may be more and more pressurised but volunteering can o"er a valuable and e"ective safety vent. My co"ee mug, which has sustained me while writing this piece, is inscribed with the Welsh proverb Daw eto haul ar fryn. It’s in the same vein as those ubiquitous ‘Keep calm and carry on’ posters but it literally means ‘The sun will come BHBJO PO UIF IJMM " UBE $BOUPOB esque perhaps, it translates better as ‘Things can only get better’. As I see it, my mug is half full, the sun is shining and I urge you to press on with your usual fervour and renewed optimism. I anticipate no less. Trefor Thorpe IHBC President organisation either. We are hugely indebted to them, and all those who are moving on from Council and branch posts, for their e"orts and commitment, and we are grateful to those who are replacing them for their zeal and initiative. As our CVTJOFTT CFDPNFT FWFS NPSF DPNQMFY and the needs and aspirations of the organisation grow, these skills will be needed. So will the energetic and TUBMXBSU TVQQPSU PG PVS GVMM UJNF team led by director, Seán O’Reilly. Membership numbers remain fairly static but a steep spike in the unclassified occupation category confirms our fears that the economic climate is impacting detrimentally on jobs. In her Chair’s Review, Jo Evans outlines what we are doing about this. Elsewhere in the Yearbook, we focus in on volunteering issues with a variety of interesting articles designed to whet your appetite. There are two types of volunteer: UIPTF XIP IBWF FYQFSUJTF BOE BSF willing to share it, and those who want it and are prepared to do a KPC JO FYDIBOHF GPS UIF PQQPSUVOJUZ to get it. From whichever one of those angles you come at it, UIF FYQFSJFODF DBO CF FYUSFNFMZ rewarding. For many, volunteering can be the first time they come into contact with others from another generation or background in pursuit of a common objective o B QFSGFDU XJO XJO TJUVBUJPO The strength of any organisation FYJTUT JO UIF TVN PG JUT DPMMFDUJWF FYQFSUJTF 8IBU HJWFT UIF *)#$ JUT FYDFMMFOU QPXFS UP XFJHIU SBUJP JT the involvement and input from the regions and branches. Together they bring a breadth of knowledge from a range of specialist backgrounds that I believe is unique within UK professional bodies. Because of this we have earned the respect of governments, trade organisations and our fellow professional bodies through a diligent and practical

8 Y E A R B O O K 2 0 1 2 MEMBERSHIP OF THE IHBC The institute aims to o"er membership to all those who care for or about the built and historic environment, and our members are drawn from many disciplines. They include architects, town planners, building surveyors, estate managers, structural engineers, landscape architects, archaeologists, architectural historians, local authority conservation o!cers, o!cers from national conservation organisations, academics and private practitioners. Membership of the institute is aimed at being inclusive rather than exclusive, as far as the maintenance of proper professional standards will allow. There are therefore three categories of membership available: Full membership of the institute is open to all whose principal skill, FYQFSUJTF USBJOJOH BOE FNQMPZNFOU is in providing specialist advice for the conservation of the historic environment. Full members are OPSNBMMZ FYQFDUFE UP EFNPOTUSBUF TLJMMT BOE FYQFSJFODF JO MJOF XJUI UIF institute’s four areas of competence TFF QBHFȒõô BMUIPVHI TJHOJmDBOU skills in one or more areas may be seen to outweigh weaknesses in one of the other areas. Anybody who satisfies these requirements and has BU MFBTU mWF ZFBST SFMFWBOU FYQFSJFODF would normally be considered eligible for full membership. For those who have gained a qualification from a conservation course which has received initial or full recognition from the institute the necessary QFSJPE PG SFMFWBOU FYQFSJFODF JT reduced from five years to two years. A!liate membership is available for those who have not yet demonstrated to Council the criteria for full membership, but wish eventually to gain full membership. Associate membership is available for those who, although Delegates at the 2011 annual school on a tour of Conwy
9 S T R U C T U R E A N D M E M B E R S H I P they may not qualify for full membership, are committed to and support the aims and objectives of the institute and have obtained the support of a full member of the institute for their application. There are two concessionary membership subscription rates as outlined below. There is also the possibility of negotiating another rate for libraries. Concessions Membership is available at concessionary rates for those who are on low wages. Those on the concessionary rate will normally be GVMM UJNF TUVEFOUT QBSUJDJQBUJOH as a!liates but may unusually be full members or associates. Other members who make a case to the Finance & Resources Committee that they are su"ering financial hardship due to low wage or part time work may be eligible for the reduced rate. All forms of concessionary membership last only for the subscription year that they are agreed. Retired This form of membership allows a reduced subscription rate GPS FYJTUJOH NFNCFST XIP SFUJSF but wish to remain in contact with the institute although they are no longer gainfully employed in conservation. Those wishing to apply for this form of membership should write to the membership secretary confirming that they are no longer gainfully employed in conservation or otherwise. Libraries This is a form of associate membership where an organisation, rather than an individual, has institute membership. Those wishing to apply for this form of membership should contact the membership secretary who will advise them of the subscription rate applicable. All members have the right to receive notices, literature and Context. Only full members have the SJHIU UP BUUFOE (FOFSBM .FFUJOHT although all categories of membership will normally be notified of such meetings and will be encouraged to attend.

All membership information is kept on a computer database and names and addresses can be used for mailing of appropriate information to members subject to stated preferences on the membership application form and careful control by o!cers. MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTIONS The membership subscription year is from 1 April to 31 March each year. Subscriptions are due on 1 April and can be paid by direct debit or by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to the ‘Institute of Historic Building Conservation’. The membership subscriptions from April 2012 are: Members, a!liates and associates £102 per annum If your annual income is below £17,500 you may qualify for the concessionary rate and only pay £51 for the full IHBC service. Proof of income is required before the concession can be confirmed and has to be renewed annually. Retired members £51 per annum Hardship support If you are facing circumstances that mean our fees are not a"ordable then you should apply for the IHBC’s hardship support.

Prospective members are advised to refer to the institute’s current guidance for applicants, Membership Standards, Criteria and Guidelines (2008) which is posted on our website’s membership pages – see www.ihbc.org.uk/ join/membership_downloads/ index.html. The following provides a brief summary of the principal headings: AREA OF COMPETENCE Professional 1 Philosophy Appreciation of the social, cultural, political, aesthetic, economic and environmental values that underpin current conservation policy and practice 2 Practice "XBSFOFTT PG UIF XJEFS DPOUFYU PG conservation, including knowledge of and ability to interact e"ectively with all bodies and individuals who have a significant role to play in the field AREA OF COMPETENCE Practical: Evaluation 3 History Knowledge of the development of the historic environment including the remains of previous periods and cultures, historic buildings and settlements, works of engineering, parks, gardens and other elements of the historic landscape 4 Research/Recording/Analysis Ability to carry out or commission research, analysis and recording of the historic environment, and to maintain records accordingly AREA OF COMPETENCE Practical: Management 5 Legislation/Policy Knowledge of the legislative and policy framework for the conservation of the historic environment, its formulation locally and nationally, and awareness of other relevant legislation and policies 6 Finance/Economics Understanding of the process for the procuring of buildings and facilitating development, including finance, valuation, cost planning and contracts, with specific reference to historic buildings and areas AREA OF COMPETENCE Practical: Intervention 7 Design/Presentation Ability to analyse and evaluate RVBMJUZ PG EFTJHO FYJTUJOH BOE proposed, of buildings and areas, and to present the results of such analysis in a way understandable to both professional and lay audiences 8 Technology Knowledge of building construction of all periods, the characteristics of structures, the nature and properties of building materials and appropriate methods of repair and alteration of historic fabric. IHBC CODE OF CONDUCT The object of the IHBC Code of Conduct is to promote those TUBOEBSET PG DPOEVDU BOE TFMG discipline required of a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation in the interests of the public and the protection of the built heritage. The main object of the institute is the promotion, for the benefit of the public, of the conservation of, and education and training in, the conservation and preservation of buildings, structures, areas, gardens and landscapes which are of architectural and historical interest and/or value in the United Kingdom. This built heritage of the United Kingdom, which is part of society’s common heritage and which should be available to everyone, is, however, a limited and irreplaceable resource. It is therefore the duty of all members to act for and to promote its protection.

R E V I E W 13 $)"*3 4 3&7*&8 JO EVANS, IHBC CHAIR Writing this piece for the Yearbook is an odd experience in a way. It is somewhat similar to the feeling one gets on New Year’s Eve when forced to look back on the old year as part of the consideration of the new year ahead. This can be a satisfying and happy experience and help to galvanise the spirit in preparation for the future. I like to think the Yearbook forms part of my personal galvanisation. As in previous years, we probably need a little galvanising as it has been a full and busy one for the IHBC and the work has been relentless, as have the e"orts of sta" and volunteers. Since the last Yearbook, the government has had a full year to introduce its vision of planning and consequently for the historic environment. We have been bombarded with policy changes and shifts in emphasis against a backdrop of increasing public sector cuts and a continuing contraction in the development industry. Many of our members have had a tough year. Cuts in local authority resources have meant that conservation o!cers have found themselves at the uncomfortable end of the scaling down and reduction of local government services. In SFTQPOTF B XFC CBTFE HVJEF UP help those members who find that their positions feel less secure was prepared. This is called Why planning authorities must have conservation skills XXX JICD PSH VL TLJMMT mOBM IUNM This resource is designed to help members present a case for the retention of conservation services. We hope that this will help JOnVFODF EFDJTJPO NBLFST BOE MFBE them to recognise that our work is an investment in the future and not a drain on scarce resources. The web page includes a statement that details the vast range of work we do, identifying in particular the PGUFO PWFSMPPLFE TUBUVUPSZ EVUJFT PG conservation teams. The statement also sets out how heritage investment supports civil society and economic growth. It makes the point that our built heritage is the overriding reason why people visit the UK and that tourism makes a huge contribution to the economy in terms of wealth and jobs. I hope this resource has been of use to members in both the public and private sectors. The national political background to our work continues to change at a dizzying speed. This year we face the prospect of another radical change to the policy background to our work. In England the National 1MBOOJOH 1PMJDZ 'SBNFXPSL /11' will probably have been published by UIF UJNF ZPV SFBE UIJT (PWFSONFOU ministers assure us that all the protection and support for the historic environment that is contained within PPS' will be transferred into the new framework. It will be a supreme FYBNQMF PG DPOEFOTBUJPO JO UIBU DBTF However, how many of us SFNFNCFS UIF UJNF CFGPSF 11(T BOE national guidance? We did survive without it. The crucial thing is to have professionals in place who are TVĐDJFOUMZ DBQBCMF BOE FYQFSJFODFE to weigh up the issues and secure an appropriate outcome. There is a philosophical divide here. Some consider the national guidance essential and a bulwark against the tide of unsuitable development and change. Others believe that strict policy and procedures compromise our professionalism and make those fine, ‘on balance’, pragmatic decisions di!cult. I am not going to plunge into that philosophical debate; it is enough to say that this is the position the government considers the correct one and so we should endeavour to do our best with it. Nevertheless, the IHBC is not a wholly compliant and supine PSHBOJTBUJPO XJUI PVS NFNCFSTIJQ this is never going to be very likely JT JU 5IF DPOTVMUBUJPOT QBOFM IBT continued its robust, intellectually rigorous and unrelenting mission to scrutinise policy changes, government consultations and political shifts. A trawl through the list of the panel’s Jo Evans chairing the 2011 AGM
14 Y E A R B O O K 2 0 1 2 responses this year is impressive in terms of the number, breadth and rigour of the responses. The panel and the consultations consultant James Caird have again worked very hard and e!ciently. The sweep of consultations is wide: permitted development rights in Wales, historic battlefields in Scotland, local listing in England and enabling development in Northern Ireland, European VAT, as well as the broader proposed changes such as the Penfold Review in England and the NPPF. One of the primary concerns set out in our response to the NPPF consultation was that there was a lack of recognition on the part of the government that the historic environment is everywhere so this was brought out in the consultation response that the institute submitted. This point alone illustrates the maturity of our PSHBOJTBUJPO BOE JT BO FYQMBOBUJPO of the breadth and coverage of our work and consultation responses. The less glamorous but still highly valued work of the institute keeps trundling on of course, like the engine room in a beautiful ocean liner, not particularly obvious, but entirely essential. The committees meet regularly and rely entirely on the dedication and goodwill of the volunteers who sit on them. Each plays a vital role in the institute: Education, Policy, Communications & Outreach, Membership & Ethics and Finance & Resources, and they steer the good ship IHBC through choppy waters. This year we have embarked on a review of governance and we are scrutinising the way in which we organise ourselves and whether this can be improved. This is not because we think there is anything inherently wrong, it is a healthy and necessary process, a little like an organisational MOT. I do realise that it’s not the most gripping of subjects, but we do need all of our members to consider this issue, even just for a moment. Do contact us if you think there are any ways in which we could improve our performance. Of course there are less bureaucratic parts of the IHBC year than the governance review which are still a vital part of our work and the annual school is the high point of the IHBC calendar. This year the sun shone on us as we breathed deeply of the North Wales air in Llandudno. The Welsh branch provided a wonderful few days that was only slightly marred by my e"orts to mangle the beautiful Welsh MBOHVBHF BOE * IBWF UP SFNJOE ZPV that although my name is Evans I have not a drop of Welsh blood, I am TPSSZ UP TBZ "O VOFYQFDUFE PVUDPNF of my language lessons was that it gave me an opportunity to cement a friendship with the new president. There is nothing to bring two people together like the awe of the student at the skill of the tutor and the sheer horror for the tutor having to watch his student perform in public! This was the year of course in which we lost one president and gained another. I would like to thank Eddie Booth for his support and wise counsel during our two years together and I look forward to working with Trefor, who has already proved to me personally that he is immensely capable, patient and blessed with BO FYDFMMFOU TFOTF PG IVNPVS Naturally, none of our achievements would be as successful or e"ective without the unstinting work of the national o!ce – a huge thank you to them.

R E V I E W 15 MAKING MORE WITH LESS 4&©/ 0 3&*--: IHBC DIRECTOR Looking ahead in $%&$ we can see many challenges, whichever part of the conservation world we work in. There have been some appalling incursions into the infrastructure of conservation services in local authorities and these are well documented by the IHBC’s own surveys, supported by English Heritage and now Cadw. Similarly, the policy frameworks are changing and the misty-eyed ideas that were anticipated in the proposed new heritage legislation of only a few years ago seem little more than fond memories. De-regulation is now the watchword (albeit sometimes whispered) in governments across the UK. In England the Department for #VTJOFTT *OOPWBUJPO 4LJMMT %#*4 has been promoting recent reforms under the cover of implementing a much more integrated and thoughtful report by Adrian Penfold, a director at property developers and investors British Land. These reforms pose a major threat to some of the fundamental truths of conservation. Penfold’s ideas of customer service, integrated professional standards and refined processes are lost in the DBIS All have achieved a higher profile in Scotland than anyone, myself included, might have anticipated. In Wales the linkage between the political and the professional has been developing very well, with a strong ongoing dialogue between the key players. Cadw has provided invaluable support to the *)#$ T QMBOOFE 6, XJEF MPDBM authority capacity survey by helping to fund the survey of Wales. Equally, the close partnerships on the development of legislation in Wales, building on lessons hard won in our discussions on proposed legislative change in England, have secured the loyal friends and positive support that such open discussions generate. However, Wales still lacks an appropriate linking body active across conservation interests, in the way Scotland has BEFS or, for the voluntary sector, England has The Heritage Alliance. This is despite long discussions and substantial investment, not least by the IHBC. The missed trick of a Wales Historic &OWJSPONFOU /FUXPSL BQQSPQSJBUFMZ JG JSPOJDBMMZ QSF OBNFE A8)&/ or, better still, a Built Environment 'PSVN 8BMFT #&'8 NBZ become more of an issue as the pace of change progresses there. In Northern Ireland things have been developing a little more slowly than previously as we await UIF NVDI BOUJDJQBUFE EFMFHBUJPO PG powers to local authorities. However, UIF *)#$ JT IFMQJOH UP SF GPDVT discussions on suitably practical issues, looking at the conservation capacity there in line with our other conservation capacity research.

But of course there is nothing new about forward planning being TBDSJmDFE PO UIF QZSF PG FYQFEJFODZ In Scotland there has been a less formally aggressive stance against the regulation that caring for our heritage can generate.

These linkages have helped to tie the conservation threads together more e"ectively than in England, but then Scotland is a much smaller place. BEFS is faced this year with the end of a funding programme that was originally initiated, with commendable foresight, by Historic Scotland. Like so many of Scotland’s heritage organisations, BEFS now finds its operations hampered by the uncertainty of its future balance sheet. Yet its promotion of a number of key initiatives in Scotland has been crucial in marking out at least what might be possible if the sector were to join together. Recent initiatives in BEFS include: t building MOTs to test the condition of buildings t local authority conservation capacity standards t forward planning for skills in the DPOTUSVDUJPO JOEVTUSZ UISPVHI the Sector Skills Council, $*5# $POTUSVDUJPO4LJMMT t highlighting VAT imbalances, as VAT generally applies to SFQBJST CVU OPU OFX CVJME

At the same time the national heritage agencies are mOBMJTJOH B 6, XJEF AQSPUPDPM PO UIF TUBOEBSET FYQFDUFE PG BDDSFEJUBUJPO with IHBC membership fitting comfortably into that programme. Highlighting the paramount importance of relevant skills in traditional construction is crucial. The IHBC has been just one of the many very active bodies generating this important advice. In fact the practical considerations that underpin the theme for this Yearbook – volunteering – are inspired by the need to generate additional capacity, suitably skilled, for the care of our heritage. Indeed, improving historic environment capacity within the business of development lies at the heart of the IHBC’s priorities for the future.
