Webinar: Understanding the historic environment (OnDemand)

Estates property quiet gravel path

The historic environment is made of up more than just listed buildings and scheduled monuments, and there are different implications depending on the type of asset.

Some of those implications are more well-known than others, and there are common misconceptions.

This webinar will help broaden your understanding of what heritage assets are, the implications of designation and how to avoid pitfalls.

Conservation areas are also something to be aware of when advising clients in property transactions, as they are afforded greater protection and development in these areas is generally restricted.

The webinar covers:

  • what is the historic environment and what is its relevance to property transactions
  • terminology and who decides what is / is not listed / scheduled
  • consequences of decisions
  • conservation areas and what to look out for
  • where further advice and support can be found.
