Regeneration and the Historic Environment
Heritage as a catalyst for better social and economic regeneration
The historic environment lies at the heart of our sense of place and England's most attractive and distinctive environments have always been sensitive to their context. Understanding how places change, and recognising the significance of their history, is the key to successful and sustainable regeneration and stronger communities.
This document, published in 2005, outlines how the reuse of heritage assets can lie at the heart of sustainable development and provides a useful checklist for successful regeneration projects.
Whilst some of the references in this document may now be out-of-date, English Heritage believes it still contains useful advice, information and case studies.
We are in the process of devising new guidance to reflect the changing thinking on the role of the historic environment can play in economic growth, development and regeneration.
