Working as individuals and through societies, volunteers can not only support local authorities in their roles but also take their own steps to preserve the wider built and social heritage. Hannah Barter explored the roles volunteers can play in celebrating, commemorating and protecting this heritage. She used examples from a range of projects she has worked on, including the Barnet and Enfield Local Lists; Heritage Open Days; the bicentenary project for the eminent architect Augustus Pugin, centred in North Staffordshire; and Leek 2018, a WW1 community heritage project.
Hannah is a Director of Urban Vision Enterprise CIC and has 14 years’ experience in planning and community development. Urban Vision was engaged by Barnet Council to review the Local Heritage List. Hannah worked with volunteers from the Finchley Society and other community groups to produce a revised list, which was launched earlier this year. She is a chartered member of the Royal Town Planning Institute and was awarded the Chesterton Zoe Dawson Award in 2002-03 for her work on urban green spaces with Birmingham City Council.
This was our fifth online meeting. We held it using Zoom, a popular and widely used videoconferencing platform. If you would like more information about our online meetings but are not a Member of the Finchley Society, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
