The committee of Rescue have responded to English Heritage’s consultation on their proposed new model.
The “New Model” being proposed, will to split English Heritage into two bodies. One part will become a charity focused on the conservation and public enjoyment of the “National Heritage Collection” of buildings and monuments. This charity will retain the name “English Heritage.” The other part will continue to fulfil the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission’s duties and responsibilities for preserving England’s wider historic environment. Those services will be delivered under the new name of “Historic England”.
Rescue have responded, in detail, to the consultation, which will have far-reaching implications for the management of England’s irreplaceable heritage.
