New body for Scotland’s heritage

5th December 2014

The Scottish Parliament has paved the way for a new body to be set up to oversee the management and protection of Scotland’s heritage. During the final parliamentary stage at Holyrood on 4 November 2014, the Historic Environment Scotland Bill was backed unanimously by MSPs, giving the green light for the new organisation to be created, subject to Royal Assent.

Historic Environment Scotland, the new body, will play a key role delivering Scotland’s first strategy for the historic environment, ‘Our Place in Time’ and ensure that heritage is protected and promoted while providing real and increasing benefits to Scotland’s people. In doing so it will deliver the functions of Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS).

The Bill will further simplify the public sector landscape by reducing the number of Scottish public bodies.

The process is well underway to appoint a board for the new non-departmental public body, which will be fully operational by October 2015.
