English Heritage has issued the report on the findings of the consultation on the next version of the National Heritage Protection Plan. Key points of the report include:

  • Broad support for a unifying framework that identifies the most important things to be done, and 56% of online respondents felt that  it was clear what the current plan aimed to achieve
  • General agreement that the right opportunities, threats and priorities for heritage had been identified
  • Need for more clarity of roles and responsibilities of the organisations
  • People and organisations would like to find out more about how to get involved
  • Presentation and language of the NHPP needs to be clearer.

The next NHPP 2015-2020 is being developed by the independent advisory board and should be published later this year.
