“Thanks for putting on such an informative event, I have picked up ideas to filter into my work”

Her Majesty The Queen’s Estate at Sandringham provided a unique setting for this one-day conference funded by English Heritage. The event brought together a variety of Design and Heritage Champions, planning, regeneration and conservation officers and elected Members to explore and discuss Managing Change in Urban and Rural Historic Landscapes. Hosted by Greg Luton, Regional Director of English Heritage, delegates were treated to presentations on:

  • The masterplanning of Poundbury
  • The historic landscape in the planning process
  • How the preservation of our historic landscapes can help in the battle against climate change from the National Trust perspective
  • The modern day threats to our archaeological heritage and landscape and what is being done to preserve them
    Parks and gardens at risk
  • Abbots Hall Farm and its adaptation of an historical landscape
  • Mr Marcus O’Lone, the Queen’s Agent at Sandringham gave a highly entertaining talk on the Sandringham estate, its history, sustainability, land use and how the estate has adapted over time, before delegates were lead on a tour of the Sandringham estate including access into private areas of the grounds.
