Buildings at Risk Register
'Looking after' the Cultural Heritage, of which the built heritage of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority is central, is one of the core functions of the National Park Authority. Although the built heritage is one facet of cultural heritage it is one that both the local residents and the visitor alike relates to and it gives a sense of place and tangible character to the interaction between humans and the surroundings. The following strategy focuses on the most vulnerable listed buildings within the Authority. As human demands on buildings change then so must buildings. Many of the buildings on the ‘at Risk’ register face diverse challenges because they are no longer considered to have the economic use that they were originally designed for. Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has 1955 listed buildings. Most of these buildings are kept in good order but some are in need of repair from major to minor maintenance. These listed building are what make up the ‘Buildings at Risk’ Register. There are currently 132 buildings or Structures on the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority ‘at Risk’ register. That equates to 6.8% of the listed building stock in the National Park Authority. The survey for this register was completed in 2010 and from the survey data this document has been drawn together.
