With political momentum, media interest and public awareness in tackling climate change at an all time high this is a timely and much-needed guide.

This practical and in-depth look at improving the environmental sustainability of listed and historic buildings provides expert advice on what adaptations are likely to be most suitable and, crucially, how effective they are likely to be in saving money and carbon.

Although the guide focuses on listed buildings it has direct relevance and application to many areas of conservation and in particular unlisted historic buildings.

  • Full of expert 'hints & tips' from those with years of experience in heritage regeneration.

  • A quick reference FAQ section answering all those questions about when statutory consents are needed and tips for achieving a positive result.

  • Regulation differentiation for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

  • Practical advice and cost comparisons on moving to cleaner energy.

  • Thirteen full colour case-studies on a variety of buildings including Government Offices, Denton Hall, Gibson Mill, 'Feildbarn' Eco-pods and Castle Howard.

  • A comprehensive list of sources of further information, including details of sustainable suppliers and products.

  • Information on schemes and initiatives that could save you time and money on your adaptation project - ensure you know what you are entitled to.
