English Heritage (officially the Historic Building and Monuments Commission for England) is an executive non-departmental public body of the British Government sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). By caring for the built environment, English Heritage complements the work of Natural England which aims to protect the natural environment. It has a broad remit of managing the historic built environment of England and advises the relevant Secretary of State on policy and in individual cases such as registering listed buildings and scheduled ancient monuments. Simon Thurley has been chief executive since 2002.
