Civic Voice held their Regional Forum last week in Birmingham, attended by Gavin, our Chairman. The Regional Forum is chance for members of civic societies and other affiliated groups from across the country to come together and discuss the latest issues they are facing. Concerns for conservation of our built heritage was high on the agenda, particularly the challenge local authorities are facing with the lack of resources. Birmingham City Council is currently consulting on the Conservation Area Review which includes the potential de-registration of two Conservation Areas in the city.
