Heritage Counts

The second annual survey of Jersey’s historic environment has been published by Jersey Heritage.

Heritage Counts 2015 report has been prepared by Jersey Heritage on behalf of the States of Jersey Environment Department and in association with the Island’s other heritage organisations including the National Trust for Jersey, the Channel Islands Occupation Society and the Société Jersiaise.

The report brings together information and data about the state of the Island’s historic environment to help us better understand and show the value of heritage and its contribution to our lives and local economy. The evidence collected demonstrates heritage has a positive impact in many ways – including enriching our quality of life, enhancing local pride in our cultural identity, contributing to our knowledge, and as an asset for economic development - being a major driver of overseas tourism.

The theme of Heritage Counts 2015 is the changing face of the town of St Helier, and the desirability of protecting its historic character and identity. The report provides a summary of measurable indicators, which show how Jersey’s heritage and historic surroundings have an economic, cultural, environmental and social impact on the well-being of the Island and its community.
