Management Agreements for Field Monuments
We can offer funding to improve the management of monuments via term agreements with landowners or tenants.
How do Management Agreements work?
We can offer funding to improve the management of monuments or access to them through agreements with the owner or occupier of the land. These agreements usually run for a term of three or five years.
We can include payment for one-off repairs which would usually be carried out at the start of the term. More major repairs can be considered under our Repair Grants for Heritage at Risk grant scheme.
Our priorities for funding through management agreements will be scheduled monuments at risk.
We work closely with Natural England, whose agri-environment funding scheme, known as Environmental Stewardship, is the primary source of funding for landscape management.
We will concentrate our management agreements on sites where environmental stewardship is not available or appropriate.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of entering into a management agreement for a monument on your land, please contact the Business Manager in your local Historic England office.
