The Alliance for Building Conservation exists to bring together representatives from the Island’s heritage and conservation groups to discuss and act on matters of common concern.



To conserve our architectural heritage and make our Manx built environment as attractive as our outstanding landscape - this will dramatically raise the quality of life for everyone.


Current Objectives

  • An improvement in the planning and registration procedures.
  • An efficient enforcement policy and practice with regard to planning and the removal of eyesores.

  • The encouragement for buildings to be sustainably conserved, including changes to the current tax structure.

  • To see an appropriate education programme about the Island and its history for all government employees.
