The Buildings at Risk Register (BARR) is maintained by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and provides information on historic buildings at risk. These include those that are vacant, suffering neglect or threatened with demolition. Just under 2,200 buildings are currently on the register. BARR was established in 1990 in response to growing concern over vacant listed buildings and those in Conservation Areas that had fallen into disrepair.
Philip Robertson, HES, said: “BARR is intended for use by anyone with an interest in bringing buildings back into use. That includes property developers, heritage organisations, investors, architects and individuals with an interest in renovating, repurposing or saving these buildings.
“We want to further understand who uses the register and how they use it. We’re keen to hear from community groups and others who are working to refurbish buildings at risk and put them to good use.”
