Historic England Corporate Plan 2020-23 - Building the future

The Corporate Plan sets out our purpose, vision, values, and priorities for 2020–23 and how we will realise the value that is tied up in our extraordinary heritage. Our historic environment yields wide ranging benefits in terms of environmental welfare, community pride, personal well-being, and economic impact. Historic England is committed to working with partners across the cultural and heritage sectors to understand and make better use of this cultural heritage capital.

Much of the content and underlying planning that underpins this year’s Corporate Plan was completed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. This document still reflects our ambitions and intent, but Historic England will inevitably need to adapt its activities and plans in response to wider circumstances.


  • Our priorities – the six strategic objectives
  • The central role of the Public Value Framework
  • How we spend resource, including staff
  • Our purpose, vision and values
