I am today publishing a Heritage Statement: One Year On. This document seeks to provide an update to the Heritage Statement of December 2017, and also builds on the 2016 Culture White Paper.

The Heritage Statement was created with the aim of linking the heritage agenda to our wider agendas and strategies for industry, for regeneration and placemaking, for skills, for the environment, and for an internationalist, outward-looking Britain. It applies to England only, except where it relates to international issues and UK-wide policies and programmes.

The One Year On Statement outlines the progress we have made since the Heritage Statement was published in 2017. In the last year, the heritage sector has gone from strength to strength, and we in Government recognise our shared heritage is the inheritance of all UK subjects.

This update seeks to outline the progress we have made, and areas where we will seek to deliver further change over the months to come.

The Heritage Statement: One Year On is available on GOV.UK.
