Industrial Heritage Recommendations

1
Create an inventory and assess the industrial heritage on a brownfield site, as part of the material for informing a comprehensive master plan. This will help to achieve consensus to future actions and uses of historic features without compromising the integrity and cultural history of the site.
 
2
Cultural heritage can be reinforced through festivals, events and social links with the industrial past. A compelling and professional PR enhances the acceptance and popularity of the cultural heritage and thus connects the industrial past with modern life.
 
3
It is essential to undertake a full assessment of the specific conservation needs, costs and special skills and resources required for effective and sustainable restoration.
 
4
Be aware of legislative framework related to industrial heritage assets
 
5
Ensure that all interest groups are acknowledged in decisions regarding the treatment of industrial heritage in a brownfield site development.
