Event description


This course aims to improve understanding of the statutory background to accessibility and the historic environment, and to share best practice in managing historic places of worship for greater access.

Who is this event suitable for?

This course is aimed at people who deal with the day-to-day management of listed places of worship (such as building managers and volunteers), as well as higher-level decision makers (e.g. Diocesan Advisory Committee staff). It would also be useful for local authority staff that deal with planning applications affecting listed places of worship, as well as heritage professionals who regularly work on these buildings.

By the end of the day delegates will:

1) Be aware of the Historic England guidance on how to promote change that safeguards historic buildings and places.

2) Understand the statutory background to accessibility and the Historic Environment.

3) Know how to approach and develop access audits and plans.

4) Understand best practice in terms of adaptation to buildings improving mobility & wheelchair access and sensory access.

5) Be able to make decisions about balancing access and economic pressures.
