English Heritage news release

15 February 2000

UKP 1.4 million boost for voluntary heritage heroes: twenty-two Heritage 
Grant Fund awards for voluntary heritage bodies in England

A Hackney-based project which encourages local people to explore how 
buildings are created, the Heritage Open Days Programme which aims to 
provide public access to 2,000 historic sites, and a scheme giving free 
planning advice are some of the twenty-two projects and societies that will 
receive Heritage Grant funding over the next three years.

The Heritage Grant Fund provides help to national and local organisations 
for projects which further the objectives of English Heritage by:
* increasing understanding and enjoyment of the heritage and widening 
access for all
* identifying and recording neglected aspects of the historic environment
* promoting high standards in conservation practice

This is the first year that English Heritage has been responsible for 
distributing the Heritage Grant Fund, having taken over the role from the 
Department of Culture, media & Sport in the DCMS Comprehensive Spending 
review as part of the development of English Heritage as the lead body for 
the historic environment.

Voluntary organisations make an enormous contribution to the protection and 
promotion of the historic environment, both nationally and at local level. 
Their works aims to make the historic environment relevant and accessible 
to everyone by encouraging people to engage with their heritage as 
volunteers, visitors and supporters.

This year's funding continues to support the work of the Amenity Societies, 
the Civic Trust and organisations such as the Historic Chapels Trust which 
helps to preserve, repair and maintain redundant non-Anglican chapels and 
other places of worship throughout the country.

In addition, five projects will receive Heritage Grant funding for the 
first time. These include the Hackney Society, dedicated to exploring the 
contribution of ethnic minority communities to the historical and cultural 
development of hackney, and the Libertas Charities Group which aims to 
widen the scope of intellectual access to the historic environment by 
providing exemplary audio tours for people with disabilities.


Notes for Editors

1. The Heritage Grant Fund is targeted at national organisations for 
projects which further the objectives of English Heritage for the historic 
environment in England. Funding is also offered for local projects which 
provide an exemplar of good practice and the potential for wider application.

2. There are two main types of awards: core funding towards the 
administrative costs of voluntary bodies and project funding which enables 
voluntary organisations to undertake innovatory or experimental projects. 
Emphasis is given to supporting new initiatives and those projects which 
make most effective use of voluntary effort. Funding is generally awarded 
for three years, though in some cases, funding for one year is more 
appropriate.

3. The national amenity societies were founded to encourage public 
appreciation of the historic environment, and thereby secure its 
conservation. Individual aspects of the historic environment are covered by 
each Society. Under current Government policy, as laid out in paragraph 15 
of the DCMS Circular 1/97, the Societies must be notified by local planning 
authorities of any application for listed building consent made under the 
Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, which involves 
an element of demolition. The Societies' views must be taken into account 
by the authority in determining the application.

4. Details of the funding awarded for 2000-2003 follow below.
