The IHBC Northern Ireland (NI) Branch has welcomed the appointment of the new Department for Communities (DfC) Minister, Paul Givan of the DUP, and the opportunity to work with him, while the DfC’s heritage section, the Historic Environment Division of Northern Ireland has just published a document on its structure and a list of contacts.
IHBC NI Branch Chair Andrew McClelland said: ‘On behalf of the Branch, we are very much looking forward to working with the new Minister, helping together to progress the conservation of the Historic Environment in Northern Ireland.’
HE Division writes:
Historic Environment Division works in collaboration with a very wide range of individuals and organisations in the public, private and third sectors to ensure that, together, we record, protect, conserve and promote our heritage in ways which support and sustain our economy and our communities. We provide expertise and skills, seeking to improve the understanding, caring for and appreciation of our heritage, and to ensure a suitable balance between respecting a rich past and building a successful future.
