Historic Scotland encourages Scottish families to Make Their Own History

Media Releases

Following the success of its 2009 ‘Make Your Own History’ marketing campaign - which resulted in membership levels reaching an all-time high - Historic Scotland is launching its latest major drive to encourage Scots to make the most of their country’s rich heritage. The 2010 ‘Make Your Own History’ campaign, which runs from 26 March to 11 July, will highlight the opportunities for great family days out offered by Historic Scotland’s outstanding heritage properties and leading visitor attractions. And to encourage families to enjoy the historic highlights on their doorstep and become Historic Scotland members, ‘Make Your Own History’ is offering a special incentive - 15 months’ membership for the price of 12. A year’s free entry for all the family to Historic Scotland’s 78 paid attractions already costs less than £7 a month but during the campaign, an additional three months is being offered for free.

Historic Scotland helps traditional buildings become more energy efficient

Media Releases

Historic Scotland is challenging the view that traditionally built homes, which comprise almost a fifth of Scotland’s houses, are energy inefficient and a barrier to meeting Scotland’s carbon reduction targets in the housing sector. This is one of the issues which will be discussed at a conference, “Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Traditional Buildings” hosted by Historic Scotland on Wednesday 24 March at The Hub in Edinburgh. Historic Scotland will be presenting their results of research and activity to assist anyone who has any involvement with a traditional building, whether it is a home, school, hospital, shop or a factory to make it more energy efficient.

New scheme to speed up listed building consent

Media Releases

Historic Scotland has invited every local authority in Scotland to join a planning scheme to improve and speed up the process of dealing with certain types of applications affecting category B listed buildings. This is part of a range of reforms aimed at strengthening the partnership between Historic Scotland and local authorities across Scotland. It follows a successful three month pilot scheme where Perth and Kinross, Glasgow City and the City of Edinburgh councils were able to issue listed building consent for B listed buildings without the need to consult Historic Scotland. The pilot found that consents were issued more quickly and in line with policy. On average, pilot applications were determined 27 days more quickly than non-pilot category B cases. Just over half of the pilot cases were resolved within eight weeks.
