How to Look After Your Listed Building
19th & 20th October 2017
2 day course for Local Council Clerks and Officers
This FREE course is aimed at anybody who works in or looks after listed buildings as an organisation, company or local council. Perhaps you are taking over a museum from the county council? Maybe your offices are based in a Victorian Town Hall? As part of Brackley Town Hall's restoration project, the Heritage Lottery Fund have given money to deliver this course FREE to all attendees.
Following 2016's acclaimed event, we are running this course for a second year. Over two days, delegates will learn about what listing is, how it works and how it applies to you. You will learn about Conservation Management plans and Maintenance plans and how best to introduce these to your own councils as well as lots of practical advice from a whole team of experts.
The course is facilitated and run by Iain Soden, from IS Heritage, (http://isheritage.co.uk/) who has a vast array of experience and a career spanning archaeology, historic buildings and heritage sites. He will call upon many of his contacts to help deliver the course so delegates will really get the opportunity to 'Ask the Expert' when it comes to listed buildings, working in historic settings and what to look out for, avoid and encourage.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the two day course.
