Scrap English Heritage (1983) & let The National Trust (1895) do it

Comment 21st July 2010
Scrap English Heritage (set up in 1983) & let The National Trust (set up in 1895) do their job.
Why have two? merge them under the more trusted National Trust.
It would be much cheaper and much less political.
As it would also stop English Heritage arm twisting their candidates in to jobs in every planning office up & down the country.
Its also undemocratic allowing them to derail developments, stirring up local opposition, dictating planning against local wishes.
and still allowing excellent old buildings to be demolished.
Like allowing there own Art Deco HQ on Savile Row to be demolished just after they moved out, against locals and architects opinions.
Stop them listing 1970s & 1980s buildings against the wishes of tenants the owners and local councilors and residents.

Why does this matter?
