This Strategic Plan will guide and direct the work of the Board and staff during 2012–2016. In particular, the Heritage Council realises the need to contribute to national recovery and to demonstrate how heritage can be a resource for social and economic development. A quality heritage supports employment, offers an outstanding educational resource, and supports heritage-based tourism.
Quanta Research: Grant Aid Building Conservation - Executive Summary
Built/Urban Heritage & Archaeology /
An executive summary of the report which examines existing grant-giving towards building conservation in Ireland. The study specifically set out to provide an analysis of the amounts of money that are offered (‘quanta’), and how effective they are.
This study on grant-giving in Ireland makes the case for continued state authority funding of a wide range of built heritage grants. The study also outlines the growing interest in ‘preventative maintenance’ and how to achieve value for money in grant-giving for building conservation. The Heritage Council received a grant in 2010 from the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to implement the Government Policy on Architecture 2009 - 2015.

Keeping the graveyard in good condition is important to local people as it reflects pride in their parish and is an acknowledgement of the contribution our ancestors made to its development. This publication aims to provide local communities with guidance and suggestions.
A core aim of the study has been to determine the current value of economic activity generated by
Ireland's historic environment: primarily through quantifying levels of employment and national income
which may be attributed, both directly and indirectly. The study has also identified the wider community
benefits or public goods that Ireland's historic environment provides, and has assessed the potential for
Ireland's historic environment to aid sustainable growth and economic recovery.
