Green Heritage: How far can we go?
Cambridge’s City councillors recently made a landmark, and controversial, decision to approve the installation of solar panels on the roof of the iconic Grade I Listed King’s College Chapel. With twice the national average of listed buildings, Oxford faces similar complex decisions in order to help combat the climate crisis and meet its 2030 net zero objectives. How will new build fit into the historic environment? Can retrofitting work in the Conservation Areas? How far is Oxford really willing – or able – to go?
