Conservation Areas – History, Use and How to Assess Them

6 February 2020 at 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

GROW logoA three session course...15 hours for £60, concessions available. (6th, 13th & 20th February 2020.)


Join our Conservation Project Manager Matt Bentley at Fydell House, Boston for this 3 session course.

The first conservation areas were designated in 1967 under the Civic Amenities Act, and there are now nearly 10,000 in England. Conservation Areas can be created where a local planning authority identifies an area of special architectural or historic interest, which deserves careful management to protect that character. There are many different types including:
 The centres of our historic villages, towns and cities
 Fishing and mining villages
 18th, 19th and 20th-century suburbs
 Model housing estates, including late 20th century housing projects
 Country houses set in their historic parks
 Historic transport links and their environs, such as stretches of canal and railway and airfields
 Industrial heritage sites.

This course will explain the history and development of conservation areas and how they protect the historic environment today. The group will undertake desk-based learning into how to assess important features in the historic environment and then go on a practical tour to assess a historic conservation area and its positive characteristics.

This course starts on 6th February 2020 and continues on 13th & 20th February 2020. (10am - 3pm each day).

Tea, coffee & biscuits provided.
Booking is essential. For an enrolment form please email htladmin@heritagelincolnshire.org or telephone 01529 461499. If you are a member of Heritage Lincolnshire you will be eligible for a discounted rate of £45.
