The NFB Heritage Group is a specialist group consisting of NFB members involved in the heritage built environment; it is designed to promote, and secure a sustainable future for the heritage industry.
The UK’s historic environment provides a tangible link to the past and contributes directly to the social, educational, and environmental prosperity of the country. Through tourism and regeneration, it also supports a healthy economy and maintains the country’s existing assets. Heritage and traditional buildings make up approximately 20% of the UK building stock and include buildings constructed around and before 1919. Listed buildings make up about 2% of total building stock.
