Charles takes up new post with heritage body

  • Comment

Prince Charles has been appointed patron of the Historic Towns Forum (HTF), six months after walking out as a patron of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB)

The forum said backing from the Prince of Wales ‘brought recognition to its work’ with UK towns and cities.

The HTF supports the work of built environment professionals by producing good practice guides and by holding seminars and conferences.

The Prince’s resignation last summer from his role as patron of SPAB freed the opportunity for the appointment.

Charles left the SPAB over a dispute about how modern architecture was being used in the restoration of old buildings.

Debbie Dance, HTF chair said: ‘We are delighted that The Prince of Wales has become our Patron at such an interesting time, when there is so much pressure on our towns and cities to change and an inherent need to get that change right if we can. Our job at the Forum is in making the right conversations happen.’
