Fine for historic building loss
I think until it is an offence to let a listed building fall into decay there will be no come back. I suppose my point is that there is not much excuse for it and much of it is deliberate.

I worry more about the un designated heritage assets and the grade Two listed buildings where it is up to the cash strapped local councils (subject to pressure from local developers) to police what happens.

Until the public understand that their heritage is at serious risk there will be no change. They are very good at getting upset once something has gone but not good at recognising the threat. Perhaps it's our job to do that and educate them?
