IHBC Policy Secretary Roy Lewis will update delegates at the IHBC South West (SW) Branch event, ‘Heritage in Law, in Bristol on 9 June, on the IHBC’s advocacy work relating to Historic England’s recent draft advice on listed buildings and curtilage.
Roy Lewis said: ‘I am very pleased that South West Branch has organised this conference. Everything we do as heritage professionals must be in accordance with the law, yet policy and guidance don’t always seem to align squarely with statutory requirements.’
‘Recent issues such as the Historic England advice on listed buildings and curtilage have highlighted the difficulties in applying the law as it relates to heritage. Clearly this conference is very timely.’
IHBC SW Branch offers the following context to its ‘Heritage in Law’ event:
‘The subtleties, nuances and complexity of the law in relation to the historic environment is a subject highly relevant to all practitioners dealing with decision-making relating to our heritage. This conference is a timely update on this fast-moving legal framework which underpins our day to day work.’
