Durham World Heritage Site lecture series 2017 - Final lecture

(20 November 2017)

Roger Cornwell will present the final event in the series with his lecture entitled 'Closer to Home - Heritage at Risk in Our Neighbourhood' on Wednesday, 29 November at 6pm in room PG21, Pemberton Building, Palace Green. This lecture is free to all. Please confirm your attendance by emailing

This talk will look at how the pressures on Durham City is threatening our heritage, and how the Durham City Neighbourhood Plan, currently undergoing its public consultation, has policies that aim to tackle this problem. But will they work? Are they strong enough? Or will they stifle development? The Forum hopes to get submissions from the public, and from local organisations, to help improve the Plan before it comes into force.

A drinks reception will follow the lecture at the World Heritage Site Visitor Centre.
