English Heritage has produced a draft thematic research strategy for the urban historic environment and is inviting comments from a range of audiences over the summer period (to 30 September). The draft strategy sets out current thinking on the priorities for English Heritage relating to historic towns and cities and is intended to direct the allocation of resources towards research which contributes significantly to English Heritage’s mission to protect the nation’s historic environment. The strategy will be revised in the light of comments received during the consultation period and will be aligned with the developing National Heritage Protection Plan, which will set out the corporate strategy for the period 2010-2015. Comments on the strategy paper are welcomed, and the paper can be viewed by following this link:
From this introductory page, ‘urban’ can be selected from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen: this opens a page devoted to the urban historic environment, and the draft thematic research strategy can be accessed by opening the pdf on the right-hand side of the screen. Comments on the draft strategy should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it would be appreciated if correspondents could include their full name and details of their position and affiliations.
