On the first day we have a number of national keynote speakers delivering their thoughts and concerns on how we balance conservation and regeneration in our urban environments [including the Chair of the IHBC, James Caird]. It’ll be your chance to hear, discuss and share with them lessons that you have from your area and give you a chance to influence the national debate on ‘How do we balance conservation and regeneration?’
