This report is the outcome of a pilot project. It includes nine audits covering different geographical areas in Northern Ireland – North Belfast, Downpatrick, Armagh, Upper Lough Erne, Strabane, Hillsborough, Carrickfergus, Upper Ards and Bellaghy. The audits examine the heritage assets of a defined area, alongside the capacity and activities of the relevant heritage organisations. They aim to build a picture and identify opportunities for development that can further support our historic environment while strengthening community cohesion, opportunities and economic growth.

The audits have been commissioned by Historic Environment Division, Department for Communities and carried out by external consultants and are presented here as a source of reference, and a basis for further discussion.
