That is why English Heritage established HELM.

HELM (Historic Environment Local Management) provides accessible information, training and guidance to decision makers in local authorities, regional agencies and national organisations whose actions affect the historic environment. The Institute for Archaeologists. Save the date!

City Car Club

Insurance, servicing, MOT, tax, cleaning, parking permits, the list goes on… But imagine if you could have access to a choice of new cars and vans parked locally to where you live, work and study, available 24/7, 365 days of the year. Vehicles which are serviced and maintained by someone else, that you only ever pay for when you need them, not when you don’t. That’s exactly where City Car Club comes in. Cars on your doorstep City Car Club has a large fleet of cars and vans spread in dense networks across an ever-increasing number of UK cities (browse our car locations).

If global aviation's CO2 emissions were a country, they would be ranked 7th in the world - between Germany and South Korea.

Campaigning for smarter and more sustainable transport

We want global aviation market-based measures to begin to lower these soaring emissions. Aviation enjoys a tax-free ride - no VAT on plane tickets and no taxes on aviation fuel. We believe aviation should pay its fair share. In April 2014, the EU conceded to 'Stop the Clock' till 2016 on aviation's inclusion in the ETS, limiting EU emissions coverage to only intra-EU flights.
