The Heritage Alliance’s Heritage Manifesto 2017 sets out five simple asks for the next Government.

The Heritage Alliance hopes that the sector will share it widely on social media using #HeritageManifesto and you can use it as a base for your own advocacy work.

To realise the power of heritage, The Heritage Alliance is calling on all political parties to:

  • Maximise the advantages, and minimise the disadvantages, of Brexit for heritage;
  • Maintain and improve the protection for heritage;
  • Attract more investment and engagement in heritage, and build sector skills and capacity;
  • Effect positive fiscal change for heritage;
  • Continue to back Lottery funding for heritage

Loyd Grossman, Heritage Alliance Chairman, said:

‘I urge all political parties to take on board the five simple asks in our Heritage Manifesto. Heritage is not simply about our past, it’s vital to creating places for the future in which people want to live and invest. Heritage is a major industry in its own right with heritage construction alone worth £9.7 billion in England. Importantly during an election campaign, heritage is also a vote winner. People love heritage – nearly four times more people visited heritage attractions in 2016 than attended league and championship football matches. In uncertain times, all politicians should see the value in ensuring that the heritage sector can tell our nation’s stories and support social cohesion, rootedness and identity.’
