Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland

The Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland Our Place in Time, stemmed from a fundamental review of historic environment policy committed to by Historic Scotland in their Corporate Plan for 2012-15. One of the key issues to emerge from the policy review was the need for a cohesive strategy for the historic environment that went beyond the planning system and ‘the sector’ and belongs, not to Government or one organisation but a collective; the people of Scotland. The outputs of this review therefore became the foundation of the Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland.

On the 4th March 2014 The Scottish Government published the collaboratively developed Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland - Our Place in time which sets out a vision, definition and desired outcomes for the historic environment. The Strategy has a set of overarching principles and strategic objectives, which will help achieve the vision to better understand, protect and value our historic environment now and for future generations.

The strategic priorities underpinning the Strategy are:

Strategy Cycle Excerpt

Delivering the Strategy

A governance structure has been established to support delivery of the Strategy made up of an overarching Strategic Forum, an Operational Group and a series of workstreams to take forward key issues identified by stakeholders.
