Heritage in Planning
Principles and practices for the effective management of change in the historic environment
Understanding the value and significance of the historic environment is essential to its effective management. Securing an active role for heritage assets in how places develop is key to successful place-shaping. The course introduces the key opportunities, requirements and issues of managing heritage in the planning process, from the earliest stages through to final outcomes. A series of case studies, workshops and a short site visit will show how the sustainable management of designated and non-designated heritage assets can be achieved through the development management process.
The courses is for local authority planning officers and early career postgraduate heritage professionals working in the public sector only. Essentials courses are not open to individuals working in the private sector. Skills introduced are essential for development managers, strategic planners and those looking to establish a grounding in planning for the historic environment.
