DCMS announces new model for English Heritage following consultation

NHSF welcomes the announcement today of the creation of Historic England. We look forward to continuing to work alongside Historic England, and its sister organisation English Heritage, in promoting the highest quality heritage science research to safeguard our Historic Environment.

The plans include a new body to manage and promote the properties and sites in the National Heritage Collection (English Heritage) and the creation of a newly-named non-departmental public body (Historic England) to carry out the existing English Heritage duties and powers in planning and heritage protection.
