The Heritage Manifesto sets out 5 key political priorities for the future:

  1. Champion our unique heritage sector on the world stage – maximising opportunities in the event of Brexit, and minimising its challenges for heritage;
  2. Maintain and improve the protection for heritage;
  3. Promote heritage assets as part of creating vibrant places to live in, and build sector skills and capacity;
  4. Reform the tax regime to promote the repair and maintenance of our nation’s irreplaceable heritage assets, whilst tackling climate change;
  5. Continue to back Lottery funding for heritage.
