Andy Atkinson MSc FRSA

For over 30 years I have worked in the third sector in local building conservation in Southend-on-Sea, including as architectural advisor to Milton Conservation Society. I have participated with Southend Borough Council in challenging policy and guidelines as well as assisting the development of good local conservation and conservation thinking.

As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts I hope to help develop local and national heritage network connections as part of a project with Historic England.

I studied architecture at the Architectural Association in London and following this worked as a project architect for many years in London and Southend-on-Sea, working on a variety of medical, commercial, housing and landscaping projects. I have also undertaken a number of conservation area building design projects. I then studied at Anglia Ruskin University achieving Master of Science [Distinction] in Conservation of Buildings. My dissertation titled 'Understanding precedence and how historical buildings inform development intervention in England' enquired into how change in a fast moving, technologically driven society impacts on historical buildings. This is now being prepared for academic publication.
