The Historic Environment Forum is the top level cross-sectoral committee, bringing together chief executives and policy officers from public and non-government heritage bodies to co-ordinate initiatives such as the annual audit of the historic environment – Heritage Counts – and to strengthen advocacy work and communications.
The Heritage 2020 initiative is being led on behalf of the Historic Environment Forum by Dr Mike Heyworth, Director of the Council for British Archaeology and Chair of the Heritage 2020 HEF subcommittee. He is keen to engage a wide variety of partners in developing the collaborative framework:
“A key aim of Heritage 2020 is to demonstrate how partnership working can add value and lead to the delivery of key outcomes which will enhance the understanding, protection, and enjoyment of the historic environment in England. We would welcome all offers of support and engagement to help take this initiative forward over the coming five years”.
