Restoring and Regenerating Historic Buildings Conference

Tuesday, 7th September 2021 0930hrs – 1430hrs

This event will delve into the restoration of and re-purposing of historic buildings across the UK – highlighting future projects, best practice and funding opportunities.

Historic buildings are unique. From their design and architecture to the history and culture they possess – they add character to towns and cities, but many are at risk of being lost. At this online conference we’ll hear from multiple speakers who’re passionate about restoring historic buildings and regenerating those which are in desperate need of repair.

We’ll explore the most exciting projects in the UK – from large scale restorations, to the regeneration of heritage buildings into new homes and employment hubs, ensuring we don’t lose unique and historical assets and making sure they have a role to play in our future towns and cities.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Historic England’s £95m High Streets Programme
  • HES’s plans for up to 300 heritage buildings
  • Victorian Grade-II listed building convert plans
  • Rokeby’s redevelopments
  • Yorkshire Water’s plans to redevelop Esholt Hall
  • Intel on Leicester’s High Street Heritage Action Zone
