Get an overview of the Scottish, UK and European legislative framework within which the historic built environment is managed and protected.
Examining the main policy drivers affecting building conservation will give you a greater understanding of how the conservation sector in Scotland operates. You will also explore the roles of statutory bodies, public funders, voluntary organisations and civic groups in broader policymaking and decision-making.
A particular focus is the process of designating sites for protection, which is a significant means of managing change in the modern world. As well as listing, scheduling and conservation areas, the module will look at National Parks and World Heritage Site status.
