Heritage Asset Audits

Audits

One of the key elements in developing our understanding of the potential of our heritage, has been the production of 5 ‘Heritage Audits’. NIEL, commissioned by HED and HLF (through th HLF Catalyst Programme), developed audits for – North Belfast, Downpatrick, Armagh, Strabane and Lower Erne. NIEL engaged 3 consultants – Leah O’Neill, Marianne O’Kane Boal and Eddie O’Kane – to take the project forward.

The intention of the audits is to examine the heritage assets in the area, the organisations involved in the management and use of the assets, and the benefits being derived from them.

The exercise has proved very valuable in recommending further opportunities for realising economic and community value from heritage. The final versions of the report are provided below. Historic Environment Division are currently considering how best to take forward the reports’ recommendations, and to undertake audits of further areas.

The reports can be found here:
