‘Heritage at Risk’ Pilot Scheme Announced for Broadland

Press Release 19th February 2013

 Heritage at Risk Pilot Scheme Announced for Broadland.

Following a national search run by English Heritage, Broadland District Council, working in conjunction with Ingham Pinnock Associates, has been chosen to carry out a Heritage At Risk Pilot Scheme.

English Heritage asked interested parties to consider how best to set up and present a list of Grade II  buildings that are considered to be ‘at risk’ from decay, vandalism, misuse or collapse and to trial the scheme within a given area.

The Broadland District Council Scheme was put together to involve as may community groups and local people as possible. The Council and Ingham Pinnock Associates felt that this would give local communities the greatest opportunity to share their views on the condition of Listed Buildings within the locality.

Kate Pinnock from Ingham Pinnock Associates said; ‘We are delighted to be working with Broadland District Council to undertake the pilot for English Heritage. This is a wonderful opportunity to identify heritage at risk and where possible, to help develop a strategy for their restoration.’

The scheme will be managed by Broadland Council and Ingham Pinnock Associates with input where necessary from experienced heritage professionals including Ian Lush from The Heritage Alliance, John Townsend from the Architectural Heritage Fund and Iain Soden from IS Heritage.

Broadland District Council and Ingham Pinnock Associates will be recruiting volunteers wishing to be involved in the project over the coming weeks. Volunteers will be given building assessment training and an opportunity to attend lectures given by leading heritage professionals. Owners of listed buildings affected by the pilot scheme will be contacted with further information.

Councillor Shaun Vincent, Broadland District  Council Portfolio Holder for Planning said; “This is a good opportunity for the Council to identify buildings at risk and to offer advice to their owners. Broadland residents value the built heritage within the district and recognise the importance of it to the vitality of their communities.”

For further information on the pilot scheme or to register your interest in becoming a volunteer, contact Kate Pinnock on [email protected] or Broadland Council on 01603 430569. You can also visit the project Facebook page ( or sign up to a newsletter available on the following website
