CPD: Conservation Planning

Wednesday 13th March 2019 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

Scotland has a diverse historic built environment be that buildings, archaeological sites, designed landscapes or ancients monuments. This built heritage needs to be responsibly managed and maintained. Utilising his vast experience as a Chartered Building Surveyor and Heritage Consultant, Ian Mitchell Davidson will provide best practice for preparing and implementing Conservation Plans and Heritage Impact Assessments for developments within historically sensitive places.

Preparing such documents encourages those with the responsibility to assess how and why the built heritage is significant and how it should be managed in order to conserve that cultural significance. Currently developing a major HLF Conservation Plan and HES Grant, Ian can offer specialist advice on this Conservation Planning topic. 

Ian Mitchell Davidson is a specialist in heritage conservation who worked for the National Trust for Scotland for over three decades. He is a Visiting Professor at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen and a Heritage Consultant to the trustees of Braemar Castle. He is a well-known authority on building conservation and has delivered lectures in the United States, Australia, the then USSR, Estonia, Latvia and elsewhere around the world.
