London Historic Buildings Trust (LHBT) has appointed five new trustees and created two Vice Chairs to its board to help it achieve its ambitious new strategy, which focuses on social impact in its delivery of a larger number of sustainable, heritage-led regeneration projects.
Diana Beattie OBE, Chair, said: “We are very pleased to welcome our new trustees, who come from a variety of backgrounds. They bring a wealth of new knowledge and skills that complement the substantial expertise in heritage and building regeneration that we already have on the board. The enlarged team marks an important step in our new strategy and in our work as a catalyst to help London’s communities by unlocking the wider value of our historic buildings.”
LHBT, formerly known as Heritage of London Trust Operations (HOLTOPs), aims to deliver high quality, sustainable heritage-led regeneration projects. It has a 28-year track record of re-using historic buildings throughout Greater London for the benefit of local communities.
