Eco Retrofit for Listed Buildings & Conservation Areas

February 22 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

With domestic households being responsible for 24% of UK carbon emissions we can all play a role in reducing our impact on the climate.  But  retrofitting in conservation areas can be complicated, which comes first conservation concerns, or tackling building related carbon emissions?

This session will look at how much local authorities can waver from statutory obligations and if there are ways  to work around requirements and obligations so that  householders in conservation areas are able to tackle their domestic emissions.

Come and hear from the experience of Bath Community and West in how to tackle retrofit in listed buildings, share your experiences and discussion points.
