Cadw is committed to conserving properties in its care — which include some of the greatest and most special sites in Wales — to the best possible standard.

We want to support and encourage others to meet the same high standards to ensure the conservation of historic assets all over Wales.

We are promoting practices which ensure that the management of historic assets conform to professional standards and modern best practice — including advocating the adoption of Cadw’s Conservation Principles for the Welsh historic environment.

We are taking collaborative action with partners to promote conservation and building skills and to provide training opportunities, and we are developing and targeting our advice, guidance and grants to promote sustainable conservation, maintenance or other ‘added value’.
