What you told us
In 2017 we commissioned Pye Tait Consulting to research whether Historic England's written advice and guidance provides the right information to the right audiences in the most effective way.
We are very grateful to everyone who took part in this study and shared their views.
The review found that overall our advice and guidance is well received and trusted. However, you told us that it isn't always easy to find the right advice and guidance on our website and we are looking at ways to improve that.
The report also highlighted that the sheer volume of available advice and guidance from a range of different organisations can make it difficult for users to know where to go first (especially people who don't need to access this advice very often). The report recommends greater collaboration to minimise the risk of duplication, strengthen content and improve cross-promotion.
The Audience Insights Report is available to download from our website.
