Historic Environment: Local Authority Capacity (HELAC)

HELAC is a sector-wide initiative designed to explore ways of supporting local authorities to re-evaluate their historic environment services in line with budget reductions.

Pilot studies from Cheltenham, Chichester, Essex, Northumberland and the Cotswold area will shortly be published by English Heritage, showing the different approaches taken by areas in providing historic environment services. Although councils are not expected to mirror the decisions taken, given that conditions are unique to each area, they will find it helpful to examine the processes others have gone through.
