The Civic Trust - Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

The Heritage Protection Bill: the next steps, and how you can help
A change in short-term Government priorities has meant that the Heritage Protection Bill, over which so many bodies, including the Civic Trust, had worked hard over the past ten years, was dropped from the Queen's speech, to cross-party disappointment. The Bill was intended to consolidate and rationalise the disparate heritage legislation of the last century.
Among those provisions requiring the legislation were:
- statutory requirement for local authorities to hold Historic Environment Records, under one single schedule;
- interim legal protection for buildings being considered for Listing;
- better protection of archaeological sites which cannot be scheduled;
- the merging of Conservation Area Consent with planning Permission;
- Heritage Partnership Agreements to remove the need for multiple consents for complex sites

Civic Trust licensing lecture - view it now!
Philip Kolvin, the Civic Trust Chairman recently gave a hugely interesting talk to a group of Civic Societies in Leeds. This free event was an opportunity for Civic Societies to directly gain advice from a top barrister. Philip practises in the field of licensing, regulation, planning and local government and is Head of the Licensing Team at 2-3 Grays Inn Square and Chairman of the Institute of Licensing.
You can view the talk Philip gave by visiting the link below. Alternatively, if you cannot view the video you can log into the members only area and download the presentation and a briefing paper.
And finally, a Very Merry Christmas!
The Civic Trust would like to wish all our members and supporters a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2009! Thank you for all your support in 2008 and we look forward to seeing you in 2009!
Sincerely,
Civic Societies Team
