Presentation by Russell Day, GGF Technical Officer, on installing glazing in conservation areas. The talk covers the planning framework, the process with local planning officers and the work the GGF Heritage Window Group is doing to change hearts and minds on an issue that’s costing installers millions of pounds each year.

25th May (12:10 – 12:40pm) – Accident will happen! But why risk it?
