Event description


This course is based on the recently published guidance 'Managing Local Authority Heritage Assets'. The course is aimed at Asset Managers, Estate Surveyors, Facilities Managers, Planners and anyone engaged with the maintenance and management of Listed Buildings in Local Authority ownership. It is aimed at staff with limited existing knowledge of heritage, so is not suitable for conservation officers or other heritage professionals.

Calling on a range of expert speakers from the Property and Heritage sectors, the course is designed to introduce managers to the variety of historic buildings and sites, the existing tools for good practice and how to achieve benefits from the historic estate.

Learning outcomes:

• Understanding the range of heritage assets and signposting where to go for further information on these.

• Understanding of a framework of ‘best practice’ in managing heritage assets and how heritage can be integrated into asset management plans (AMPs).

• An understanding of options for ‘action’ for heritage buildings including understanding of the conservation and maintenance aspects of heritage buildings, continuing use, alternative use.

• An understanding of options for ‘disposal’ for heritage buildings including understanding sale and transfer of day-to-day management and other partnerships, recipients, and the steps taken to safeguard the heritage interest after transfer.

• Tools for management and recording.
