Last year ACFA took part in the public consultation on the draft Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland and the Outline Business case for the merger between Historic Scotland and RCAHMS. Our written submission can be found in the Members’ Area.
The new strategy that emerged from the consultations and further discussions has just been published. The intention is to ensure that Scotland’s Historic Environment is cared for, valued and protected in a sustainable way. The strategy can be found at www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2014/03/8522 .
The Historic Environment Bill to create a new Non-Departmental Public Body, Historic Environment Scotland, has been laid before the Scottish Parliament and can be found at www.scottish.parliament.uk/parliamentarybusiness/Bills/73219.aspx .
