Twentieth Century Society has grant to carry out work
To mark the 50th anniversary of conservation areas this year, the Twentieth Century Society has been awarded a grant by Historic England to research which areas of primarily twentieth-century development are currently conservation areas and whether other areas would benefit from being designated, or should be valued for contributing to the architectural or historic interest of conservation areas of older buildings. The project aims to produce information and guidance for heritage professionals, planners, local authorities and the public. There will be a seminar to share the results at the end of the year.
If you know of areas of C20th built heritage (from 1914) that are already conservation areas, or that you think should be considered for designation, please email C20ConservationAreas@gmail.com.
