Harriet Townsend and Emma Dring discuss heritage points at appeal and in the higher courts and highlight some recent developments in heritage law and practice.

Topics covered include:
- Heritage and tall buildings, including recent Historic England consultation.
- What is the 'optimum viable use', to be weighed against less than substantial harm?
- Climate change and renewable energy – implications for the historic environment.
- The Coronavirus pandemic 2020 - miscellaneous issues for the heritage sector.
