Abstract (in English)

Of the 500.000 buildings in England, of special architectural or historic interest, that will be statutorily protected by 1988, more than 46.000 are estimated to be at risk from redundancy, underuse, neglect or decay. The Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission of England, set up by Act of Parliament in 1983 is launching an initiative in partnership with local planning authorities and voluntary amenity groups first to inventory and then monitor the condition or welfare of the built heritage: to assess the nature and magnitude of the threats to the irreplaceable cultural resource and to act upon them.
