Jane Dann, Director at Tibbalds, has provided expert advice on a consultation publication, ‘Keep it London – Putting heritage at the heart of London’s future’ produced by Historic England.
As a member of London Advisory Committee, Jane has helped Historic England draw together this document, which forms part of Historic England’s wider mission to get heritage at the heart of the new London Plan. The report’s recommendations are based on a roundtable discussion made up of a panel of experts representing planning, heritage, and property development.
This year marks the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London after which, London’s historic street pattern endured alongside a new, more resilient architecture. Three centuries later, St. Paul’s Cathedral was an important symbol of endurance in the Second World War. And it was the war that gave birth to the listing system that protects and celebrates some of our most precious assets. Today St. Paul’s is at the heart of the protected views needed to keep safe London’s distinctive profile and prospect.
