The Welsh Government has published its report on the future of heritage in Wales (press release, English, Cymraeg).

‘Both the plans and panel will support a strong overarching strategic framework within which Cadw can continue to provide leadership for the historic environment sector at a national level and use its sponsorship relationship with the Commission to promote and reinforce mutual priorities.

‘The consultation response to the proposals to merge Cadw and the Royal Commission was mixed and having carefully considered these views, in addition to the evidence and analysis undertaken by my officials, I’ve decided that both organisations will remain separate for the time being.

‘This avoids the financial costs, organisational risks and disruption to the sector at a time when public resources are scarce.’

The consultation document and responses can be found here.
