the cafe isn't fixed

To complain about this ...
English Heritage is a public body with responsibility for all aspects of protecting and promoting the historic environment.
Officially known as the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England, English Heritage is an Executive Non-departmental Public Body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
English Heritage advises the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on proposals to "list" buildings of special historic or architectural interest.
English Heritage expert staff also advise local authorities and, where necessary, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on applications for listed building consent relating to Grade I or II* buildings or the demolition of any listed building.
English Heritage works in partnership with the central government departments, local authorities, voluntary bodies and the private sector to:
- Conserve and enhance the
English Heritage meets these responsibilities by:
- acting as a national and
international champion for the heritage
English Heritage consider buildings
for listing in these ways:
Industrial heritage: our work here is closely related to the industrial component of the Monuments Protection Programme. Work so far has included the lead mining and textile manufacturing industries, and post-war industrial buildings.
Pubs: pubs have become increasingly standardised in recent years, and although many hundreds of pubs are already listed for their age or architectural qualities, very few have been listed for their importance as pubs. This means that the importance of many pub interiors has not been fully appreciated. We have launched a campaign which aims to make the public more aware of how the listing criteria are applied to pubs, to ensure that this interesting part of our heritage is adequately protected.
Industrial cities: the area lists for Liverpool and Manchester, are already being reviewed to take account of our increased appreciation of the industrial significance of many of their buildings, particularly their warehouses.
The defence of Britain: the significance of many buildings associated with national defence, including barracks, dockyards, and airfield structures, has only recently been fully understood. Surveys carried out with the co-operation of the Ministry of Defence will ensure that the most important buildings will be protected.
We decided to look at the whole field of buildings dating from the period 1945-1965 by building type and held a series of consultations on all our proposals for listing in 1995 and 1996, backed up by photographic exhibitions and publications explaining the basis on which post-war listing recommendations are made. These have attracted much press coverage and enormous public interest."
"From 1 April 2005 English Heritage will be responsible for the administration of the listing system.
New notification and consultation procedures for owners and local authorities will be introduced, as well as clearer documentation for list entries.
Further changes will be made to the listing system throughout 2005/06, including the introduction of new information packs for owners.
The intention is to make the heritage protection system simpler, more transparent, and easier for everyone to use. "
