IHBC’s HESPR member survey results show ‘cautious optimism’

The recent IHBC survey into private sector conservation business  linked to the IHBC through our HESPR programme, reveals ‘cautious optimism’ about trading business, IHBC’s Chair Mike Brown has observed, welcoming the report.

The IHBC’s HESPR scheme – our ‘Historic Environment Service Providers Recognition’ listing – is just one of the ways the institute supports its members.  HESPR offers low-cost access to a register of business practices that work to the IHBC’s conservation standards, with benefits that include notices of current tender opportunities.  By responding to an annual survey, HESPR members can help the IHBC develop its advocacy for corporate bodies in the built and historic environment conservation sector. 

IHBC Projects Officer Fiona Newton, who carried out the survey, said: ‘Of course our list of HESPR members is still small in terms of numbers, but it is a very select and representative grouping for the sector as a whole. This is because HESPR members’ work ranges across the full spectrum of conservation-related commercial practice’.

‘So it especially good news to see that most practices responding to the survey suggested that whilst their staffing levels were unlikely to increase this year, 80% of respondents expected turnover and profitability to grow in the next two years, and 77% felt the outlook for the coming year was likely to be better than pervious years.’

‘In terms of current clients, private clients and local government represented the biggest sector of business, with the biggest geographical area coverage being in London and the West Midlands.’

‘Amberfield’ designation proposed by RICS

A new report by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), entitled ‘Property in politics’, calls for a new designation of land entitled ‘amberfield’ to address housing shortages, where local authorities work together to promote development opportunities.

The report includes a series of twelve recommendations are proposed overall – covering housing, planning and development, construction and infrastructure.

RICS writes:
Our Property in Politics report sets out bold new vision for property market.

RICS has proposed a new solution to solve the UK’s chronic housing shortage in the Property in Politics report launched today.

Among a raft of recommendations, the report recommends the introduction of a new land classification, Amberfield – which would create a pipeline of ‘ready to go’ land, increasing housing supply and promoting development opportunities.

Under RICS proposals, local authorities and communities will have to work together to label sites favourable for development as Amberfield and each local plan will have to include a set quota of amberfield, ready to be developed for housing. The quota is expected to be set between 30% and 50% but the framework and guidelines for each quota would be open to consultation in order to match the specific needs of each local authority and community.

Amberfield sites would have to be developed within five years and therefore local authorities will be required to approve planning consent for Amberfield within a set time frame, otherwise the authority would risk being  classed as ‘failing’ under the RICS proposed OfPlan assessment*. The new classification will enable local housing needs to be met and would create a five-year land supply that works for communities and builders.  The community will have better understanding of the planning process, more control over what is built where, and be able to see the long term development plan.

While both brownfield and greenfield play an important role in the current planning system, both classifications block or slow development and local growth is being impeded by extensive battles to bring forward land. Amberfield will speed up the process and take out cost for both developers and local authorities – enabling homes to be built faster on the agreed sites. It will provide certainty to investors, unlocking development opportunities, and will also encourage local infrastructure investment.

The review of land classification, coupled with the other RICS recommendations – including development delivery units and a nationwide housing zones programme – will cut through the bureaucracy barriers, speeding up housing delivery and encouraging cooperation across local authority boundaries, stitching together the regions.

The RICS Property in Politics report is the result of the largest consultation ever undertaken by RICS, with property professionals from across England sharing insight into the biggest challenges currently facing housing, planning & development, construction and infrastructure and what actions a future Government should take to remedy them.

London redundant office homes rule

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has announced that empty office space in Islington can continue to be changed into housing under an article 4 direction.

DCLG writes:
Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis, today (17 September 2014) took steps to ensure that empty and redundant office space in the London Borough of Islington can continue to be converted into new homes for Londoners.

Since May 2013, those looking to convert offices into new homes have been able to do so under a permitted development right – that is, without applying for planning permission, other than a light-touch ‘prior approval’ mechanism for transport, contamination and flooding issues. Such rights have been enthusiastically adopted by the housing industry, with a particular move towards providing new studio and 1 bedroom flats. This has included the conversion and refurbishment of the Archway Tower in Islington.

However, Islington council issued an Article 4 Direction, seeking to remove these rights across the borough. This was despite a special exemption exercise previously taking place, which exempted the much of the strategic office space in the borough.

After discussions with the council, the steps taken today by ministers will limit where office to residential conversions cannot take place under permitted development rights to very small, targeted parts of Islington – rather than a blanket ban applying across the whole area.

Anyone looking to convert offices to homes outside those specific areas will continue benefit from the government’s permitted development rights, where they no longer have to apply for planning permission other than the prior approval process.

Housing Minister Brandon Lewis said: ‘House building levels have reached their highest levels since 2007, but there is an acute need for more homes, especially in London.

With more mobile modern day working practices, and housing being in such demand, it makes sense to allow the free market to create new homes on brownfield land. In turn, such regeneration helps protect the countryside.

The steps I’m taking today ensure that Londoners can benefit from the steps we’ve taken to cut red tape and make it easier to deliver these new homes in Islington.

This map, for illustration purposes, gives a general outline of the areas in Islington where the Article 4 Direction applies. Formal documentation will be published by the council.

EH’s online ‘Research News’: Economy & the HE

The latest issue of English Heritage (EH) Research News, is online magazine on research updates, focuses on the links between heritage and the economy.

The current issue features an article by Duncan Melville on methods for assessing the economic value of the historic environment.

Additional articles include:

  • England’s earliest surviving open-air school
  • Shared services: assessing the phenomenon
  • The Viking-age cemetery at Cumwhitton, Cumbria

EH Writes:
In this issue we report on a wide range of research, from policy-related initiatives focusing on the development of tools for calculating the economic and social value of heritage, to projects undertaken in response to major infrastructure developments, such as the proposed electrification of the Midland Main Line.

There are also intriguing items on individual buildings and sites including a piece on England’s earliest surviving open-air school in Birmingham. Alongside our in-house research work we also fund important research by others through our National Heritage Protection Commissions Programme. Without this programme it is doubtful that the remarkable and highly threatened Viking-age cemetery at Cumwhitton in Cumbria (discussed on pages 16-19) would have been excavated, analysed and recorded.

Victorian Society on Forbes & London in Telegraph

The recent news that London sits in the top ten of Forbes magazine’s most influential cities in the world has attracted the attention of the Victorian Society, who have highlighted the role which heritage plays in securing the distinctiveness and prosperity of the city in a letter to the Telegraph.

Chris Costelloe, Director of the Victorian Society writes:
‘Ensuring London’s future success and prosperity are good business reasons for readers to support campaigns to protect London’s architectural treasures, such as Smithfield Market, from demolition or insensitive redevelopment’

DCLG consults on planning and sites for traveller community

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has announced a new consultation on changes to regulations regarding the provision of sites for the traveller community and related guidance, with a deadline for responses of 23 November.

DCLG writes:
Proposed new measures to tackle travellers who flout planning rules and abuse the system will crack down on unauthorised sites, Housing Minister Brandon Lewis said today (14 September 2014). They will ensure fairness for all in the planning system and provide greater protection for our countryside and the green belt.

Between 2000 and 2009 there was a 4-fold increase in the numbers of unauthorised caravans – which, the minister argued, created tensions between travellers and the settled population.

Measures proposed today will ensure those who cause misery to their neighbours by setting up unauthorised sites do not benefit from the very planning rules they choose to ignore.

Brandon Lewis said: ‘We will not sit back and allow people who bypass the law to then benefit from the protection it can offer.  We have already strengthened the powers that councils have to enforce planning rules and take action against breaches which fuel community tensions. This will not only tackle the abuse of the system but prevent long drawn-out cases like Dale Farm.’

Today’s proposed measures go even further, and would end the perverse incentive for councils not to act when travellers ignore planning rules and set up unauthorised sites.

Where travellers set up large-scale unauthorised sites, they can cause misery for neighbours as well as significant costs to the council.

Local authorities are then faced with the difficult choice of taking early enforcement action – meaning they are required to meet the needs of travellers being moved on – or simply leave them to continue living on sites without planning permission.

Under today’s proposals, there would be no assumption that councils facing this problem in their area would have to plan to meet that need, which has only arisen because of large-scale unauthorised sites.

Instead, councils in this situation would simply be required to plan to provide sites for the numbers of travellers they could reasonably expect.

On top of this, it proposes that the definition of travellers in planning law will be changed so that local authorities would only be asked to plan ahead to meet the needs of those who lead a genuine travelling lifestyle.

This would mean any application for a permanent site by someone who has stopped physically travelling would be considered in the same way as an application from the settled population – rather than be considered under policies relating to travellers.

The majority of travellers are law-abiding citizens who abide by planning rules: today’s proposed measures would ensure travellers who play by the rules are put on an equal footing, giving them the same chance of having a safe place to live and bring up their children as anyone else.

Ministers also want to strengthen the level of protection given to sensitive areas and the green belt against inappropriate traveller site development.

Proposals published today would include reducing the circumstances in which temporary permission may be granted, ensuring green belt policy applies to traveller sites in the same way it does for most bricks-and-mortar housing, and that councils should very strictly limit new traveller sites in open countryside.

Council assets at risk from being under-valued

Councils will redevelop £13.5bn of assets by 2020, signalling a move away from selling off buildings and land, a new report reveals.

LocalGov writes:
‘Public Land, Public Good’, published by think tank Localis in partnership with property developer Cathedral Group, found that councils are looking to redevelop assets to drive revenue income as opposed to selling for one-off capital receipts.

However, it warns that up to £2.3bn worth of those assets could be under-sold if they were just 10% under-valued by councils.

The report, which has gained cross-party support, calls for a local authority ‘hit squad’ to help maximise returns on council assets. It says 5% increase on the £13.5bn assets set to be could produce almost £700m of extra revenue.

Alex Thomson, chief executive of Localis, said: ‘As the report finds, it’s vital that we get maximum use out of public assets – not just now, but for the long term benefit of local communities. Our research concludes that local government is ideally placed to catalyse the development of public sector land and assets in their area.’

Richard Upton, chief executive of Cathedral Group, warned that less than a year since of the sale of Royal Mail, public land could be the next national sell-off scandal. He also added the opportunity to use public land to reshape services and address the housing shortage was in danger of being lost.

He said: ‘Public land is a vital asset for the whole country and we need to act quickly before we lose the opportunity to transform our town and city centres and provide much needed new amenities. Once this land is sold, it is gone forever.

‘With the ongoing austerity, local authorities are being put under increasing pressure to make a quick buck, and many simply don’t have the resources or expertise to work creatively with the private sector to keep land under public ownership.’

Vaizey on London’s Art Deco Victoria Coach Station, listed GII

Ed Vaizey, England’s Culture minister, spoke to the London Evening Standard on the recent news that Victoria Coach Station has been granted Grade II listed status.

Ed Vaizey commented in The London Evening Standard: ‘Victoria Coach Station, with its soaring Art Deco frontage, harks back to another — more stylish, perhaps — era in public transport,’ he said…  ‘It certainly merits listed building status, and I hope it continues serving Londoners and visitors to the capital for many years to come.’

English Heritage’s list description says that the work is: ‘A bold and striking composition, remarkable among contemporary road-transport buildings, whose corner tower ranks among London’s most distinctive Art Deco landmarks, and one of the most notable surviving works by Wallis, Gilbert & Partners, pre-eminent specialists in inter-war industrial architecture; ??Historic interest: the inter-war growth of recreational coach travel was a significant chapter in British social and transport history. Of all the purpose-built coach stations, extant or otherwise, Victoria illustrates how, within little more than a decade, the industry had evolved into a sophisticated national network.’

IHBC Wales welcomes new culture Minister in cabinet reshuffle

The IHBC’s Wales Branch has welcomed Ken Skates as Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport & Tourism following a re-organisation of the Welsh cabinet in which Lesley Griffiths becomes the Minister for Communities & Tackling Poverty, and the former Housing Minister Carl Sergeant is Minister for Natural Resources.

John Edwards, Wales Branch representative on the IHBC Council, said: ‘I welcome the appointment of Ken Skates AM as it brings tourism together with heritage which will hopefully encourage greater awareness within Government that heritage and the Castles of Wales are ‘must see’ attractions for visitors and so generate the investment our heritage deserves.’

‘Furthermore the Deputy Minister lives in a listed building and maintains a great interest in heritage matters and in particular the skills required. This was very evident in his last position as the Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology, and we look forward to his continued dynamism in the heritage field and a good productive working relationship with Cadw’s new Chief Executive, Kate Clark, who took up her post at the beginning of the month”.

The Welsh Government writes:
The First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, today announced a reshuffle of his cabinet. He said his new cabinet was ready to focus on the tough choices Wales needs to create world class public services, and to build on the recent improvements in the Welsh economy.

Leighton Andrews returns to Government as Minister for Public Services. Carl Sargeant is now the Minister for Natural Resources and Lesley Griffiths becomes the Minister for Communities & Tackling Poverty. Edwina Hart, Huw Lewis, Mark Drakeford retain their current responsibilities, with Jane Hutt adding Government Business to her Finance role. Janice Gregory continues as Chief Whip.

Established Deputy Ministers Ken Skates and Vaughan Gething will be given enhanced roles to cover Culture, Sport & Tourism and Health respectively.

The First Minister retains responsibility for the Welsh language, constitutional affairs and promoting Wales abroad.

First Minister, Carwyn Jones, said: ‘This is a cabinet equipped with the skills and experience to deliver the changes that Wales needs in the crucial months ahead. We promised this would be a term of delivery and I am proud of what we have achieved together in the last three years.  Unemployment is lower here than in England. We have seen our best ever inward investment figures, record exam results, and ground-breaking legislation. However, there is still a huge amount for us to do, especially in the delivery of our public services reform programme.’

Cost cutting and service sharing in local government

The successful Transformation Challenge Award bids have been revealed this week as local authorities are being encouraged to share essential services and pool resources, including staff sharing.

DCLG writes:
Local Government Minister Kris Hopkins announced today (12 September 2014) that 80 local authorities will share £9 million investment as they join up services and reduce costs for taxpayers.

Successful bidders to the Transformation Challenge Award are:

  • getting earlier and more effective support to families and individuals by integrating health, social care and other services, including £624,000 to help new mothers in Norfolk and prevent children from going into care
  • helping residents improve their skills, find and stay in work by coordinating support from schools, colleges, employers and Jobcentre Plus, including £163,000 to help low skilled residents in Hounslow to access better paid employment
  • reducing crime and keeping residents safe, including £500,000 to keep isolated and elderly Durham residents safe in their homes
  • reducing Council Tax bills by sharing chief executives, management teams and back office services, including £600,000 for 3 Dorset districts planning to share a single chief executive.

The 33 winning bids, which bring together 80 local authorities through joint collaborative projects, have been rewarded with the funding because they have set out how they intend to improve services for residents at the same time as reducing the cost of those services.

The winning local authorities have predicted that their proposals will save more than £10 for every £1 of Transformation Challenge Award money invested.

Local Government Minister Kris Hopkins said: ‘I am delighted to announce that 80 far-sighted authorities are being rewarded for focusing on the needs of Council Tax payers and the people who use their services.’

By joining forces with neighbouring councils and other organisations they are not only cutting costs but also making sure their residents get the very best service.

Councils and their partners predict they will be able to save more than £100 million over the next 5 to 10 years, a significant return for the government’s £9 million contribution.

This is further proof that local government can deliver significant savings at the same time as making sure that public satisfaction with services improves.

More than half of the winning bids are focused on redesigning front line services so they provide a better deal for the people who use them. Proposals include improved access to training and employment, coordinated support for vulnerable members of the community, reducing crime and improving weekly collection waste services.

Other bids will cut down costs by merging back office teams and sharing chief executives and senior managers – including 1 trio of councils who are set to be the first to appoint a permanent chief executive across 3 councils.

MPs urge Government to revive failing Green Deal

New incentives to encourage energy efficiency should now be considered by the Government as its ‘Green Deal’ pay-as-you-save scheme has failed to drive the scale of energy saving home improvements needed to cut carbon emissions and insulate consumers from high energy bills – the Energy and Climate Change Committee conclude in a recent report.

Tim Yeo MP, Chair of the Energy & Climate Change Select Committee said: ‘Stamp duty discounts and variable council tax rates could be used to broaden the appeal of energy efficiency improvements and make them even more of a money saver for households. Extra incentives certainly need to be considered, as the Government’s flagship pay-as-you-save finance scheme, the Green Deal, has only delivered a fraction of the expected benefits so far.’

A combination of financial, communication and behavioural barriers has meant that the Green Deal has been slow to attract customers. Green Deal finance is, in principle, an attractive proposition, but the high interest rates attached to the loan, were putting off potential customers as many households are able to find cheaper finance mechanisms elsewhere. DECC’s communication strategy has been confusing and has often conflated different energy efficiency schemes. As a result, the Government has struggled to drum up support even amongst those households that could benefit most from a Green Deal loan.

Tim Yeo added: ‘The interest rates attached to the Green Deal are simply not financially attractive enough for many households to go to the hassle of setting one up. By its nature this kind of scheme also only appeals to a certain section of the population who are in a position to take out loans on home improvements. Broader incentives could encourage lots more households to take simpler and cheaper steps to improve the energy efficiency of their properties and save money on their energy bills. Insulating our homes to make them warmer will bring benefits both for homeowners and for society, as we enhance our energy security and lower our carbon emissions.’

The MPs are supportive of the principle of the Green Deal but believe the Government needs to set out a clear strategy to revive the scheme and make it both clearer and more appealing to UK households. Alternative financial incentives, and other measures and regulations, should now be considered in tandem with the Green Deal to encourage energy efficiency across wider sections of society.

EH: New listings celebrate London’s sporting heritage

New Listings at English Heritage celebrate London’s sporting heritage as Heritage Minister Ed Vaizey said that ‘These new listings are a fine mixture of buildings and structures… Each one of them is worth protecting, not just for their architectural value but also to help preserve the memories of glory, excitement and innocent fun they have provided for so many.’

EH writes:
From an Art Deco diving board in the middle of a Croydon garden centre and a public baths turned boxing hall in Bethnal Green to a pioneering style of grandstand in Finchley, research for the new book Played in London has resulted in five structures being listed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on the advice of English Heritage.

These structures and buildings, all listed at Grade II and dating from the late nineteenth century to the 1930s, tell very different stories about London’s love for sport both public and private.

Heritage Minister Ed Vaizey said: ‘These new listings are a fine mixture of buildings and structures, providing a fascinating snapshot of how sport in the capital was enjoyed in years gone by. Each one of them is worth protecting, not just for their architectural value but also to help preserve the memories of glory, excitement and innocent fun they have provided for so many.’

Roger Bowdler, English Heritage Designation Director, said: ‘From East End boxing halls to concrete diving boards, these listings highlight the variety and scale of the built reminders of our sporting past. They are testament to the love and sheer enthusiasm Londoners have for sport, both past and present.’

These historic places- some well known, others all but forgotten – provide a rare glimpse into London’s sporting past. York Hall in Bethnal Green was built between 1926 and 1929 as public baths. From the 1960s it became London’s most atmospheric boxing venue, witnessing fights from some of boxing’s greats such as Joe Calzaghe, Chris Eubank and Lennox Lewis. The concrete diving board at Purley Way, built in 1935, is all that remains of one of the most glamorous Art Deco lidos in London. The summer pavilion at Beckenham Tennis Club was built in 1896 for women players who were excluded from the main pavilion.  The 1930s squash court at Rivercourt House in Hammersmith, commissioned by novelist Naomi Mitchison, mirrors its riverside location in its design with aquatic embellishments from local artist Gertrude Hermes. While the grandstand at Summers Lane, Finchley, has the oldest surviving cantilevered roof in Britain and also features unique ‘back-to-back’ design serving both football and rugby, a layout unique in Britain.’

These listings mean that all of these unique sporting places will be protected for future generations. The research into these historic places is part of a wider project, culminating in the publication of ‘Played in London’ by Simon Inglis. The book charts the spaces, buildings, and sports that have shaped London’s cultural and urban landscape for over two millennia. Beautifully illustrated with original photographs and detailed maps, and based on over ten years of in-depth research, Played in London explores the legacy of sport in the world’s most iconic city. This is the most ambitious offering yet from Simon Inglis, the UK’s leading sporting heritage expert, who for the first time masterfully investigates the history and continuing heritage of sport across the whole of London.
