RIAS Event: The Future of Scotland’s Past

Add to Scrapbook

Venue: The Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Edinburgh
Date: Tuesday 9th October, 12.30pm – 6.00pm

This event will highlight the challenges and opportunities facing Scotland’s immensely valuable legacy of heritage properties. It will emphasise how much we continue to benefit from the enduring work of our forebears – and the responsibility this superb inheritance brings with it.

This important half-day conference will be introduced and chaired by Professor Michael Lynch who will give the keynote. The overview of current legislation will be from Lord Prosser. Ian Walford will highlight the crucial role of Historic Scotland across the sector, with particular emphasis on their recently published corporate plan. Liz Davidson OBE will give the perspective on delegated authority and Anne McChlery will talk about the increasing role of preservation trusts in project delivery. The Scottish Government’s position on VAT is quite different from that of the UK Government and much more enlightened. We are delighted to have enrolled Dave Brown, the VAT expert whose work for the Listed Property Owners Club is exemplary.

The event cost includes a sandwich lunch, a coffee break and a drinks reception.
