Heritage Window Group Set for topical meeting on 2 March

The GGF Heritage Window Group is scheduled to meet on Tuesday 2 March (10am to 12 noon) via Zoom video link and it promises to be one of the most topical to date with the following subjects being discussed:

  • The changes to the planning system 
  • Review of the GGF Planning Guides
  • Conservation areas and Zero Carbon
  • The online presence of the Group  

Alan Burgess, Chairman said, “Following the recent changes made to planning policy and the system, there’s discussion to be had on the impact it is making on our industry and if we need to see even more changes to reduce the red tape. I am looking forward to discussing this and much more at the Heritage Windows Group meeting next month.”

The Heritage Window Group was formed in 2015 and meets every quarter to discuss issues affecting the sector. The topics in meetings can cover technical, political, legislative, health and safety, marketing/PR and training.

David Borland, GGF Senior Technical Officer will be attending the meeting on 2nd March and commented, “The changes in the planning system as well as the current proposals for change in the Building Regulations will change the way work is done in the sector. Due to these changes, the GGF Technical team will be holding a review of its publications for windows and doors installed in conservation areas and heritage buildings. It is important therefore to hear Members’ views on the changes and the impact on the sector at the next Heritage Window Group meeting.”
