BEFS Congress 2013
Following our Congress in Linlithgow on 19 November on the theme of Mainstreaming the Historic Environment we have made the speakers' presentations available for those who were unable to attend. We invited a number of delegates to write reviews of, or responses to, the Congress and these will be posted as a series on our blog.

The Government will proceed with finalising the Strategy and lay the Merger Bill before the Scottish Parliament early next year. Full Details.
