DURHAM WORLD HERITAGE SITE LECTURE SERIES 2017: HERITAGE AT RISK – FINAL LECTURE

DWHS Series - November 2017 lecture Wednesday 29th November, 6pm
Venue: Room PG21, Pemberton Building, Palace Green, Durham

ROGER CORNWELL (Chair, Durham City Neighbourhood Planning Forum) – “CLOSER TO HOME – HERITAGE AT RISK IN OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD”

Please join us for our final lecture in this year’s series. Having started the year looking at the “big picture” with Professor Stone from Newcastle University, talking about UNESCO’s work in the protection of heritage at risk across the world, we are finishing off with the heritage on our doorstep and the work of our very own Durham City Neighbourhood Planning Forum towards a Neighbourhood Plan for Durham City.

We’ll also be telling you a little about our 2018 lecture series and we’d love you to join us after the lecture for a drink and best wishes for the Christmas season and the New Year (if that’s not too early!)

This talk will look at how the pressures on Durham City is threatening our heritage, and how the Durham City Neighbourhood Plan, currently undergoing its public consultation, has policies that aim to tackle this problem. But will they work? Are they strong enough? Or will they stifle development? The Forum hopes to get submissions from the public, and from local organisations, to help improve the Plan before it comes into force.

A drinks reception will follow the lecture at the World Heritage Site Visitor Centre, everyone welcome.

This lecture is free but please do write an email to raffaella.aliprandi@durham.ac.uk to confirm your attendance.

Please do circulate this email to whoever you think might be interested.

A big thank you to all of you for your continued support to our lecture series over time and looking forward to seeing you on the 29th November.
