Evaluating Heritage Information
Taking evidence-led approaches to planning for the historic environment
Effective and reasoned decision-making based on clear evidence is essential in all aspects of planning. A well-structured resource exists to support the sustainable development of the historic environment. The course introduces some of the main resources and builds some essential skills to help apply them in development management. A series of case studies and exercises demonstrate the applications of heritage information in planning and highlight the value of taking an evidenceled approach.
Courses are for local authority planning officers and early career postgraduate heritage professionals working in the public sector only.
Essentials courses are not open to individuals working in the private sector.
Skills introduced are essential for development managers, strategic planners and those looking to establish a grounding in planning for the historic environment.
