Response to the Heritage Statement 2021 consultation

Comments submitted to DCMS as part of the sector consultation exercise delivered by the Historic Environment Forum - August 2021

In August 2021 Icon was given the opportunity to feed into the development of the upcoming Heritage Statement through our membership of the Historic Environment Forum. The new Heritage Statement will set out the Government’s vision and strategy for heritage and the historic environment in the short and medium term.

Icon took part in two roundtable events (one with a general theme and one focused on climate change / sustainability). We were asked to share our feedback, thoughts and case studies in relation to the four topic areas set out below. The comments that we submitted are reproduced in this document and were shaped by Icon’s Policy Advisory Panel.
