A conference on mill regeneration will take place in Huddersfield next month.
The 2013 National Mills Conference on 26 November will be at Brooke’s Mill in Armitage Bridge.
Topics to be covered include:
- Drummonds Mill – a 7-acre opportunity
- Current regeneration in Kirklees
- Exploiting the Heritage Lottery Fund
- Textile heritage, with Manchester as an example
The event is run by Our Northern Mills, who’s management team includes well-known property figures Nigel Grizzard and Ian Tod. They are keen to talk to anyone involved in regeneration and reusing “the North’s textile heritage”, and have a long-term desire to acquire more mills and develop them.
The full day conference is £70 (£40 for third sector).
