Together, the five historic waterways we look after are one of Scotland’s most significant national collections. We maintain a consistent, approved approach to heritage management on Scottish Canals’ estate. One of our key values is that all heritage assets are given the same level of beneficial treatment and protection, whether designated (legally protected) or non-designated.
Our policies, processes and standards are in place for anyone managing, developing, disposing, maintaining or specifying works to our heritage assets.
The heritage policy provides a framework for our structures, processes and relationships to deliver positive heritage management. It sets out six principles derived from Scottish Government’s policy Making the Most of Scotland’s Canals, Scottish Canals Vision: Safeguarding our Heritage. Building our Future and Scottish Canals Heritage Strategy.
