Have Your Say on the Priorities for Caring for England’s Heritage

A consultation on the National Heritage Protection Plan gives everyone an opportunity to say what matters in the historic environment and what is in danger of being lost.

The National Heritage Protection Plan (the Plan) brings together the work of the many organisations whose work helps safeguard England's heritage. It has been in place since 2011 and runs until March next year. A public consultation is now open about what the priorities for the next plan should be, so this is an opportunity for individuals and organisations to ensure that what matters to them is considered for inclusion in the Plan.

The Plan aims to ensure that while helping to deliver positive and sustainable economic growth, England's heritage:

  • is not needlessly at risk of damage, erosion or loss;
  • is experienced, understood and enjoyed by visitors and local communities;
  • continues to provide memorable places where people live and work.

The Plan is co-ordinated by English Heritage and provides a common framework for all heritage organisations to work more effectively with each other. An external Advisory Board, which represents a wide range of organisations with interests in the historic environment, monitors and advises on the Plan.

There are two ways to take part in the consultation and both can be taken up:

  • By taking part in one of thirteen half-day workshops taking place around the country. For locations, dates and booking, please see the link on the right hand side of the page. The last workshop event is on Tuesday 29 April 2014.
  • By completing an online survey which closes on Friday 2 May 2014.

For information on the consultation, please visit the NHPP consultation page.
