Conservation Area Management - East of England
Thursday, 9 February 2017 from 09:30 to 16:30
Delegates will learn about the important role of a conservation area survey, and how it can be used to underpin management priorities at a local level. They will learn how to compare the survey data to highlight negative trends, and be introduced to tools to manage these. Where relevant, we will signpost delegates to Historic England guidance on managing issues that contribute to conservation area decline.
