Follow up to ‘Consultation on under-represented heritages

To Hindu Council UK

At the beginning of 2012, you were invited to be a part of a consultation that English Heritage undertook, to look at ‘under-represented heritages’. As a result of this consultation, we produced a report in September 2012, ‘Responses from the consultation on under-represented heritages‘ and circulated a formal response to the report.

Since then, a number of the recommendations from that report have been implemented. There has also been a major restructuring of English Heritage. This happened on 1 April 2015 when the old English Heritage separated into two parts: a charity that looks after the collections, and Historic England that champions the nation’s wider heritage, running the listing system, dealing with planning matters and giving grants.

We had also ensured that all those that participated in the consultation, were added to our mailing list and I hope that you have been receiving regular communication from us.

We are now planning a follow up to the consultation and report, later this year, to see what progress has been made and what further needs to be done in terms of ‘under-represented heritages’. This letter is to ask whether you would be interested in getting involved with us and if you would prefer to do so through a series of seminars or a conference?

Once you have confirmed your interest, we will send further details on our plans.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Trow
