Derbyshire's Heritage Comments

May 18, 2016

We recently commented on the recent Derby Evening Telegraph article about Derbyshire's heritage at risk and the question, which would you save?

 

The Heritage Trust,  Comment

ALL OF THEM! Derbyshire has already lost too many of its historic buildings and all of these have been ignored for far too long. Local Authorities need to utilise the powers that they possess to force the owners of these buildings to undertake repairs instead of standing back and letting the buildings be destroyed. We have all seen far too often the route that this dereliction takes with rooves collapsing, vandalism allowing entry and then fire prompting demolition. Groups like the Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust need more support and more funding needs to be available to prevent a buildings decay, surely it would make sense to spend a little more on urgent repairs rather than millions on restorations?
