The Knowledge Exchange Network is exactly as the name suggests; an opportunity for experienced officers and practitioners to get together to share best practice, shout about the successes and strategise the challenges!  

In this Historic Environments session, and in light of the Heritage Declares commitments, we will focus on approaches to retrofit and creative reuse in heritage environments.  Our speakers, from three different architecture practices, will each discuss an exciting project within an historic environment in Kent, considering the applicant’s ambitionlocal authority expectations and the key lessons learned.

Delivered by:

Laura Lewis-Davies, Learning Manager, Design South East

This event will be chaired by planning and heritage expert, Steven Bee, from Urban Counsel, with guest speakers from the following organisations
