Sustainable heritage conservation
Are you thinking of restoring or renovating a heritage-listed building or a building in a heritage conservation area? Do you live in an old house and you're not sure of what changes you can make?
Following our Heritage 101 workshop in May 2013, the City of Sydney is partnering with leading professional bodies to provide detailed workshops to help owners achieve a high standard of sustainable conservation.
This session – hosted by ABC TV's Quentin Dempster – will launch a series of workshops that offer practical advice on conservation techniques and sustainable conservation management.
The introductory session includes a panel discussion and the chance to put your own questions to the experts.
Speakers will discuss conservation policy and how to manage the conservation of your building.
Exhibitors will be on hand after the panel discussion to discuss key conservation trades and techniques.
The session is free but you must reserve a ticket to attend:

Maintaining our past
There are many beautiful buildings and landmarks within the City of Sydney that need to be treasured for future generations. The City has many systems and projects in place to ensure our rich heritage is preserved.
This scheme encourages conserving heritage buildings in the city centre.
