Heritage Online Debate

From September these pages will become the place where conservation and heritage experts debate the topics uppermost in their minds. Here you can enjoy a lively exchange of views for and by those interested in understanding, presenting and caring for England's rich and diverse historic environment.

Replacing our print publication Conservation Bulletin, which was published twice a year, our themed heritage debates will be published online four times a year.

Until then, if you are interested in London and the London Plan - the theme of the final issue of the Conservation Bulletin below - why not find out about our Keep it London campaign.

Issue 75: London and the London Plan

London is growing at an unprecedented rate. This edition looks at the issues this growth throws up, their effects on the historic environment and how the planning system (and specifically the London Plan) can address them.

Here you can read an introduction to issue 75, as well as a selection of individual stories, or download all of Issue 75: London and the London Plan.
