From Old to Gold: Policies, Plans, and Challenges in Retrofitting

22 May 2024, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm


Paul Shadarevian KC, Clare Parry, Emma Dring



Join us for crucial training dedicated to the UK’s approach to retrofitting and energy efficiency, particularly within heritage assets. This session will unpack the national policies impacting retrofitting, delve into funding challenges, and explore how the industry is responding to these pressing issues.

Learn about the innovative approaches local planning authorities (LPAs) are integrating into their local plans to promote energy efficiency and discourage unnecessary demolition. We will assess the effectiveness of both existing and emerging policies as tools for sustainable development. Special attention will be given to the unique challenges faced by heritage assets, including historic dwelling houses, and the specialised strategies required to preserve these valuable structures while enhancing their energy efficiency.

This webinar is a must-attend for professionals in the construction and heritage conservation sectors, policymakers, and anyone interested in the intersections of sustainability, policy, and historic preservation.
