Emergency works and advice scheme

- a new English Heritage initiative to run for one year only (up to April 2000) targetted at privately owned buildings and structural ancient monuments. It is designed to help owners to deal with sudden emergencies bought on by fire, flood etc. The intention is to prevent the rapid deterioration that usually happens as a result of such circumstances by offering emergency works grants, and advice.
