Heritage Action Zone

What does it mean for Ramsgate ?

To be honest we are not quite sure yet, this development has been introduced by Historic England (who used to be known as English Heritage) and implies that as a Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) heritage projects in Ramsgate can apply to be a partner project within the Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) group, although the ‘chain of command’ and the ‘requirements’ for inclusion seem to be very unclear !!

It was Historic Englands Martin Small that made FoRS fully aware that Ramsgate was to get a ‘HAZ’ Status back in January 2017 where he told us:
“Each HAZ comprises a series of projects and it seems to me that the renovation of the Rock Garden and Sun Shelter could logically be one of those projects. The advantage of being part of the HAZ is that it may make access to advice and grant aid easier, although I cannot guarantee that”

FoRS are waiting for the appointment of the ‘HAZ Project Manager’ which we believe to be a 5 year appointment, once the manager is in place and known we will begin discussions regarding the projects FoRS has already started and heritage projects we have in mind for the future.

What Historic England have to say about ‘Partner projects’

“As projects develop we hope to be working with lots more additional partners locally and we will keep you updated as new organisations come on board.”
