Historic Environment Strategy for Wales
Enabling the protection of Wales’s heritage whilst encouraging public access, enjoyment and participation is the main guiding principle behind the Welsh Government’s Historic Environment Strategy.
The Strategy sets out the role of the historic environment in delivering tangible social, economic and environmental benefits for Welsh communities. It lays the foundations for the Heritage Bill, due to be introduced in 2014.
The historic environment is a vitally important sector of the Welsh economy, supporting over 30,000 jobs. It contributes around £1.8 billion in output and £840 million to Wales’s national gross value added (GVA). There are 30,000 listed buildings, 4,000 scheduled ancient monuments and 3 World Heritage Sites. The Strategy aims to build on this strong base and further develop the economic role of heritage in Wales, as well as maximising the educational, training and leisure opportunities.
