He has written extensively on the Law and Planning procedures with regards to the heritage and built environment. His book, ‘Listed Buildings and Other Heritage Assets’, was revised in late 2017 and is now into its 5th Edition. It has become the ‘must have’ book for anyone involved with Listed Buildings and potential Planning disputes.
This highly detailed and engaging presentation will cover the topic of Curtilage Listings in considerable detail and will
include the following, among much more:
- how to determine curtilage Listing
- what is or isn’t a curtilage building
- case law examples
This seminar will be of relevance to conservation officers and other heritage professionals, town planners, urban designers, engineers, surveyors, architects, archaeologists, Civic Society and heritage group members and community groups involved in Neighbourhood Planning.
This is a unique opportunity and not to be missed.
