Power of Place
The Future of the Historic Environment
'A Force for Our Future' was informed by 'Power of Place'. English Heritage was asked in February 2000, by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, to co-ordinate an important and wide-ranging review of all policies relating to the historic environment – all the archaeology, buildings and landscapes which surround us. A Steering Group, chaired by English Heritage Chairman Sir Neil Cossons, oversaw the work of the Review. It included members of key heritage and environment bodies in England, as well as observers from both Government departments. Research was commissioned from MORI and a consultation exercise ‘viewpoint' was conducted.
