Heritage at Risk Register
In England, the Heritage at Risk Register is published on an annual basis by Historic England and is used as part of the government’s official statistics. First published in 1991, it helps to establish the extent of heritage assets that are under threat or vulnerable and to prioritise the action and funding necessary in response.
- Grade I and II listed buildings.
- Scheduled monuments.
- Registered parks and gardens.
- Registered historic battlefields.
- Protected wreck sites.
- Conservation areas.
For each entry, the site’s condition and trends are provided. Trends are defined as ‘declining’, ‘stable’, ‘improving’ or ‘unknown’. A priority for action is given for each entry which is assessed on the following scale (A being the highest priority and F being the lowest):
- A: Immediate risk of further rapid deterioration or loss of fabric (no agreed solution).
- B: Immediate risk of further rapid deterioration or loss of fabric (solution agreed).
- C: Slow decay (no agreed solution).
- D: Slow decay (solution agreed).
- E: Under repair or in fair-to-good repair.
- F: Repair scheme in progress.
The equivalent in Scotland is the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland which is maintained by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland on behalf of Historic Scotland. The equivalent in Northern Ireland is the Register of Buildings of Risk in Northern Ireland, compiled by the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA).
