In this consultation we are asking for your views on the content and functionality of the resulting draft policy.

In 2016, we committed to a review and replacement of the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement (HESPS). This was an interim document which was put in place when Historic Environment Scotland (HES) was formed.
The What’s Your Heritage? project was the beginning of this process and we asked the people of Scotland to tell us what the historic environment means to them and how it should be looked after.
Building upon the findings of What’s Your Heritage? we have been holding conversations with colleagues and stakeholders about what about what they would like the policy to contain and what a replacement to HESPS should look like.
We were told that our new historic environment policy should be a high level, principles-based document that sets out how all of Scotland’s historic environment should be looked after and managed and that HES ought to lead that process at a strategic level.
The draft replacement policy has the working title of Historic Environment Policy (HEP). HEP is for everyone who cares about decisions that affect the historic environment. This includes those who make the decisions, as well as anyone else affected by or interested in them. This draft policy is a product of these conversations and principles. Whilst HEP will be a short, strategic document, it will be underpinned by policy guidance.
