Conservation strategy

The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 suggests that:

‘For use on conservation projects of any size or complexity the Conservation Strategy helps to map the approach that the project team can take when dealing with historic buildings, with an emphasis on managing the effect of the heritage protection measures that currently apply to ‘designated assets’, such as listed buildings, buildings in a conservation area and scheduled monuments. Each case and situation will be different and there is no set of hard and fast rules - it is more important to adopt an attitude of respect for the past, based on an open-minded approach to the variety of opportunities and problems that will be encountered.'
