The Heritage at Risk Register - Reducing the Risks

Maintenance of heritage assets is essential if they are not to become ‘at risk’, and to prevent those that are already at risk from decaying further and thereby escalating the cost of their repair and consolidation. Buildings, for instance, decay rapidly when left empty. Avoiding vacancy through short-term lets or schemes that provide protection through residential occupation are low-cost ways of maintaining buildings until permanent solutions can be found.
