A celebration of the UK's first conservation area

Stamford 50

July 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Civic Amenities Act 1967 that saw the introduction of Conservation Areas in the UK.

The town of Stamford, Lincolnshire, was the first to be designated as a Conservation Area and, in recognition of this, Bidwells is working with South Kesteven District Council to mark the event with a one-day conference on Thursday 21 September 2017 in the Arts Centre in Stamford.

The event is being organised by Bidwells and is supported by RIBA, Historic England, RTPI, IHBC and Civic Voice.

The day will bring together a range of speakers who represent different professions and stakeholders whose life or work is influenced by the existence of Conservation Areas. The speakers will draw out what lessons have been learnt over the last 50 years and how the application of legislation has affected the way our environments have grown.
