Consultations

The Consultations Committee
The IHBC constantly monitors discussion papers issued by Government Departments and other national and regional organisations, together with Green and White Papers, proposed changes to policy and guidance and other consultations relevant to building conservation and heritage-led regeneration. The Consultations Committee formulates responses to these documents on behalf of the IHBC. The Consultations process is therefore a key element in formulating the IHBC’s external policy on a range of issues.


Current Consultations
The IHBC may not necessarily comment on all consultations, but we are glad to hear opinions from both members and non-members.

The PDR review is being taken forward in phases, with each phase focussing on specific development types. Through Phase 2 of the PDR review programme, we are seeking views on proposed changes relating to:

  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure
  • Changes of use in city, town and local centres
  • Port development
