A seminar to assist agents or owners of listed buildings or historic monuments with applications for heritage consents will be held on March 21 at Riddel Hall, Queen’s University.
The seminar is entitled ‘Constructive Conservation – making smarter applications for heritage consents: shortening the timeframe from the completion of the specifications to the erection of the scaffold.’
The seminar will outline how Historic Environment Division (HED) can assist with making improvements to applications and frontload the consent regime. It will reveal how the Second Survey information can be accessed and utilised, and provide information about the work of HED in providing guidance and responding to district councils’ Local Development Plans, Community Plans and actions with the historic environment stakeholder group.
Participants will understand how energy and access issues can be dealt with to ensure that there is no detrimental impact on the heritage fabric of a building.
Bring photos and sketches and book a slot with the HED architects.
The seminar is suitable for owners, built environment professionals, planning and conservation officers and building control surveyors.
HED architects and archaeologists will deliver a free five hour session for built environment professionals who are working with developers and owners of heritage buildings. This seminar will offer practical advice on how to help agents to help themselves to improve the timeframe from submission to formal approval.
