Talking About Heritage - Consultation

'Talking About Heritage' is new draft guidance which aims to help individuals, groups, communities and organisations investigate, share, celebrate, and to achieve recognition for the heritage that matters to them. It is intended to be used as a tool by anyone with an interest in exploring and talking about heritage.

Consultation on Talking About Heritage Guidance

Historic Environment Scotland is currently consulting on the draft guidance and they are looking for your views. Community Councils that wish to take part should download the policy guidance document and complete the consultation survey by Tuesday 15th December 2020.

The consultation survey can be found here:

Background to ‘Talking About Heritage’

The campaign What's Your Heritage? asked people from all over the country how Scotland’s places, buildings and monuments should be recognised and celebrated. Feedback from over 2000 responses to What's Your Heritage? made it clear that people wanted to achieve recognition for the heritage that matters to them. ‘Talking About Heritage’ is part of Historic Environment Scotland’s response to this.
