Our Schemes of Delegation contain the functions which Scottish Ministers have delegated to Historic Environment Scotland, and the conditions and limits that apply to the delegation.

They incorporate work undertaken through our Estate Management Programme, which has developed the policies and procedures we need to have in place as HES.

The schemes provide:

  • a process for informing and updating Scottish Ministers about our work
  • improved transparency in our working practices
  • a showcase for the value of what we do

They will also lead to new systems for inspection and recording, more formal technical standards and specification frameworks, and external peer review. The schemes give us the opportunity to look at what we could be doing better in terms of piloting new and innovative initiatives.
