Putting Old Buildings to Productive New Uses
The role of heritage-led regeneration in creating sustainable communities of the future

Date Of Conference: 4/20/2005

Britain has limited land resources, what part can our built heritage play in using these resources in a sustainable fashion? This is covered from a variety of angles: campaign professional's, the government's, civil society's and an environmentalist.

Contemplation is given to the physical management of change by looking at the practicalities of creating new spaces in regenerated buildings. Emphasis is also placed on the often ignored emotional management of change and the difficulties of relinquishing the old uses of buildings.

Sustainability may be the government's focus for new and revived communities, but can these sustainable communities be profitable too? In the third session of the day the discussion aims to get to the 'bottom line' of the financial reality of sustainability.

Nelson: there is a chance to look at an example of heritage-led regeneration outside the city in the rural community of Hayle in Cornwall. A breadth of stakeholders are represented giving ample potential for discussion. The need for traditional communities to adapt is highlighted, as is the potential generated by a community able to capitalise on its physical heritage and combine these features onto an integrated development scheme.
