The Institute of Historic Building Conservation NW Branch is delighted to announce that booking is now open for their popular annual conference. This year the theme is the setting of heritage assets and the conference will take place on 15 October in Liverpool.
The conference will explore the inter-related concepts of setting, context and character, and consider the different ways in which new development can be sensitively designed as well as how its impact can be measured and assessed. The role and contribution of views assessment and historic analysis will be examined alongside a range of case studies drawn both from the North West and nationally in order to highlight examples of best practice. The conference will consider how these concepts can be applied to World Heritage Sites, conservation areas, individual historic buildings and wider designed landscapes.
The conference will be of interest to planners, architects, developers, property owners, amenity societies, and all those who manage and care for the historic environment.
