Lichfields has completed a pioneering study for Historic England into the economic, environmental and social returns offered by Heritage at Risk sites in London. Join us to consider the Thames Valley perspective with members of the Lichfields Heritage Team.
The study was a collaboration between Lichfields' research, economics and heritage teams and draws on available metrics from project evaluation data and their Evaluate tool to quantify the values and benefits of investment into sites and structures at risk.
Ten case studies show that investment into Heritage at Risk can deliver an unrivalled richness in regeneration outcome: not just preservation of historic fabric, but optimised use of space, job creation, economic gains, enhancement of social facilities, training opportunities and educational programmes. Comparatively small investments can unlock transformational change by altering local perceptions and breaking the cycle of blight caused by redundant and problematic buildings.
Local investment in Heritage at Risk delivers investment into local landmarks, local distinctiveness and neighbourhood pride. Restored venues can become regional cultural destinations in their own right.
The influx of emails sent out in the run up to the GDPR coming into effect was a useful insight into just how many organisations hold our data, and how the implementation of the GDPR has forced them to review permissions and privacy policies.
