The Bristol Heritage Forum is an independent body set up to champion the value of Bristol’s rich historic environment. It is a network for local organisations to share and debate best practice, to facilitate collaboration, and to co-ordinate heritage initiatives. The Forum was created to make optimal use of the city’s heritage assets, skills and knowledge at a time when public resources are diminishing.
In February 2016 the Bristol Heritage Forum was established as an independent body, but one which will work closely with both Historic England and the City Council. Currently the Forum’s executives include Bristol Civic Society, Bristol City Council, Churches Conservation Trust, Historic England, JLL and the Neighbourhood Planning Network.
