That this House recognises the urgency of the current climate emergency; notes that listed buildings face practical planning barriers when installing energy efficiency measures; acknowledges that heritage sites, as tourist attractions, make many positive contributions to their communities; further acknowledges that historic houses are sources of education and job creation within and beyond their surrounding areas; considers the custodians of these estates to be sustainable partners that work to preserve culture for future generations; further notes that, given the right support, they could do more to raise awareness of the leading role heritage can play in environmental conservation; and calls on the Government to support heritage sites by publishing a review of planning and regulatory reforms.
