Study of Building Preservation Trusts in Scotland


In September 2009, ECOTEC Research and Consulting Ltd (ECOTEC) was commissioned by Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF), working in partnership with the Association of Building Preservation Trusts (APT) Scotland, to undertake an objective review of the Building Preservation Trusts (BPTs) in Scotland.  

The research involved a number of components including a review of key research and data, a survey that was administered to all Scottish BPTs, consultations with BPTs and wider stakeholders, and a good practice review.
