Historic Places Panel

The Historic Places Panel – previously known as the Urban Panel - provides a broad spectrum of independent expertise to help local authorities and others engage in the regeneration and revitalisation of historic places.

The Panel’s visits, which typically last for two days, provide strategic recommendations and a legacy of networking that can have formative and lasting benefits.
