Protecting our Heritage Assets: Community involvement in recording and regenerating local heritage

 

Rewley House, 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JA 

19 March 2019 

Tickets £35-155 from Eventbrite

As local authorities’ resources are further constrained, many are looking to local communities and experts for support in preparing heritage-related materials.  Ranging from undertaking conservation area appraisals, surveying for Heritage at Risk registers, drawing up evidence to support local lists of assets, communities are stepping into these roles with considerable success.  This seminar is an opportunity to hear more about how this can be done and how to manage expectations.

This seminar will be of interest to local authority officers and councillors, civic and amenity societies, and consultants with an interest in planning, urban design, community action, and heritage management.
