2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the Civic Amenities Act 1967 that
saw the introduction of Conservation Areas in the UK. The town of
Stamford, Lincolnshire, was the first to be designated as a Conservation
Area and, in recognition of this, Civic Voice is running the Big Conservation Conversation and will be using this conference to ask the question How can we balance conservation and regeneration?
weekend will bring together a range of speakers who represent different
background and professions, from national policy makers to community
groups, who have helped inspire change in their local Conservation Area.
The workshops, walks, talks and speakers will highlight specific
lessons and consider and showcase innovative responses that are showing a
common theme: How can we balance conservation and regeneration?
