  10. Buildings At Risk Register • The Register was created in 1990 • Funded by Historic Scotland • Run by the Scottish Civic Trust 1990-2011 • Transferred to RCAHMS April 2011 • Now an in-house function of Historic Environment Scotland • Online since 2004

  11. Saved/Restored Buildings

  12. BARR – Aims of BAR Register • To identify At Risk buildings • To record the major threats and faults • Demolition Application • Roof • Gutters/Downpipes • Walls • Windows • Doors

  13. BARR – Aims of BAR Register • To identify At Risk buildings • To record the major threats and faults • To raise the profile of the buildings with: • Local Authority • The general public • To encourage the reuse of the buildings

  14. BARR Misconceptions • It has No legal status or standing • We have no statutory powers • We cannot serve notices • We do not have any grants to offer • We cannot sell you a castle

  15. BARR – Some Facts and Figures • (Cat-A) • 2482 At Risk (417) • 381 Demolished (15) • 1265 Saved (166) • 155 Restoration In Progress (33) • 5132 Recorded in 21 years (773) • For every building lost, 3.3 are saved • For every ‘A’ lost, 11 are saved

  16. Demolished/Lost Buildings

  17. Why Do Buildings Become At Risk? • Short Term Cases • Economic Issues: • Development pressure • Recession • Long Term Cases • Structural issues • Change

  18. Long term buildings at risk

  19. Long term buildings at risk

  20. What we are not The Register is entirely non-statutory – no prevention, no obligation We have no powers of enforcement We have no grant programme for the Register We are not a pressure group We are not an estate agent, and cannot sell you a castle, a lighthouse or a Greek Thomson Church!

  21. The Challenge of ‘Useless’ Buildings

  22. Glasgow Necropolis

  23. Skelmorlie, North Ayrshire Measured Mile Marker Pole McGregor Monument Doune Cox’s Stack, Dundee

  24. ‘Useless’ Buildings • No direct economic benefit in maintaining them • Potential to be positive • Innovative approach needed • Keep options open

  25. Now the Good News! • For every building on the Register that is demolished, 3.3 are saved. • For listed buildings the ratio is nearly 5:1.

National Performance Framework • A National Indicator has been established:“To improve the state of Scotland’s historic buildings, monuments and environment” • The measure chosen for this indicator is:“to decrease the percentage of Category A-listed buildings on the Buildings at Risk Register.”

  35. Buildings At Risk Register What is a building at risk? • A listed building or a building in a Conservation Area which is: • Vacant with no identified new use • Suffering from structural problems • Threatened with demolition
