The mark of the conservation professional


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.
