Most urban Scots live in flats, and we’re all aware that these buildings can pose real challenges to residents when it comes to maintenance, energy efficiency, repairs and relations with neighbours and owners.
The Scottish Civic Trust, in collaboration with Built Environment Forum Scotland and Under One Roof are hosting this national conference to discuss issues relating to tenements. Over the course of the day, we’ll be talking about sinking funds, owners’ associations and social investment, as well as looking at international best practice.
Speakers including Kevin Stewart MSP, Annie Flint (Under One Roof), Niall Murphy (Glasgow City Heritage Trust), Graham Simpson MSP, John McKinney (Scottish Traditional Building Forum), Graham Boyack (Scottish Mediation Service), and Soraya Din (Pollokshields Owners Network), Mitch Miller and Euan Leitch (Built Environment Forum Scotland).
