Fri 31 March 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 BST
SPACES IN BETWEEN: 50 YEARS OF CONSERVATION AREAS
There are more than 10,000 Conservation Areas in England. Have they achieved the aim of preserving and enhancing the special places identified locally as being important to communities? How successful have regeneration schemes been? And has the public realm been overlooked? Speakers include Laura Sandys, Sir Donald Insall, Professor John Pendlebury, Colin J Davis, Barry Joyce, and Carol Pyrah.
