Since the project`s inception, Historic England has provided grants to support Section 17 of the project management agreements. These formal and legally binding agreements, pursuant to Section 17 of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act of 1979, require a land administrator to carry out specific work on an archaeological site (for example. B, maintenance, conservation, public access and/or interpretation). Each signatory receives a tax-exempt grant in return for signing the terms of the contract. We can offer funds to improve the management of monuments or access to them through agreements with the owner or occupant of the land. These agreements usually last three or five years. The project controls the status of a group of national historic monuments of national importance. These include Scheduled monuments under the tutelage of Norfolk County Council, property classified under project agreements, and undated cultural heritages that are known to be at high risk of damage or destruction. Since 2012, volunteers have been recruited, trained and supported to carry out state monitoring on behalf of the project.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of entering into a management contract for a monument on your property, please contact the Business Manager of your local historical office. For more information or information on wealth management, please contact the project on 01362 869291 or email@example.com. The project supports parts of Norfolk County Council that are responsible for the management of Monuments Scheduled. The planned monuments are protected by law and those in the custody of Norfolk County Council include a destroyed priory, medieval crosses, a medieval moat, two 16th century garden houses and a series of bridges. Since 2002, the project has been directly responsible for the management of the ruins of St. Mary`s Priory Church, Beeston Regis. In general, the land managers project, which is responsible for Sheduled Monuments, which is not in the custody of Norfolk County Council, refers directly to Historic England for advice. We work closely with Natural England, whose agri-environmental program, known as the Environmental Stewardship, is the main source of funding for landscape management. Section 17 agreements and grants are mainly under threat for historical monuments in the « Monument » register. Heritage assets that may be included in the risk heritage register will also be considered.
We can provide funds to improve the management of monuments through long-term agreements with landowners or tenants. Our priorities for funding through management agreements will be monuments that are in jeopardy. We will focus our management agreements on sites where environmentally responsible measures are not available or appropriate. The Norfolk Monuments Management Project was launched in August 1990 to promote the sustainable management of Norfolk`s historic monuments. From the beginning, it was a partnership project with contributions from Norfolk County Council, historic England, Natural England, the National Farmers` Union, the Country Land and Business Association and a wide range of land managers, organizations and local authorities. Agri-environmental programs are voluntary agreements that farmers and other land managers pay to manage their land in an environmentally friendly manner. Since 1990, the project has been advising on applications for environmentally sensitive areas, countryside stewardship (original scheme), Higher Level Stewardship and Energy Crop Scheme.
