CBA partnerships

We work closely with other voluntary and charitable environmental and conservation bodies who have similar aims. The CBA network and committees – in particular our Trustees, Historic Buildings Casework Panel and other ad hoc working groups – play a vital role in this process.

  • Some of our key partnerships include: The Archaeology Forum, All Party Parliamentary Archaeology Group, Heritage Alliance and The Joint Committee of National Amenity Societies.
  • The CBA comments on a large range of policy consultations and campaigns on issues which have a bearing upon archaeology and the historic environment. Our common interests with the Heritage Alliance and Wildlife and Countryside Link brings together an important skill base relating to conservation and your enjoyment of important environments.
  • Our work with environment agencies provides us with significant resources which can aid your campaigns. The National Trust, Council for the Protection of Rural England, and the Environmental Link of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland enhance our conservational work, providing us a detailed understanding of each individual, specialist area.
  • We also have connections with the expertise of specialist committees such as the Joint Nautical Archaeology Policy Committee and the Standing Conference on Portable Antiquities.
