The Historic Towns Forum (HTF), formerly the English Historic Towns Forum (EHTF), has been supporting professionals working in the historic built environment since 1987. The Forum's events and publications focus on perennial and topical issues. This collective then offers a strong platform from which to lobby policy makers on behalf of historic towns and cities.
EHTF was founded to establish and encourage contact between local authorities having responsibility for the management of historic towns and cities, and between these authorities and other public, private and voluntary sector agencies:
HTF is funded from three sources: -
The Executive Committee, elected by the AGM, meets four times a year to discuss issues, agree work programmes and make policy decisions.

2011-2012 Annual Report (323KB)
2010 - 2011 Annual Report (2.9MB)
HTF is administered by one full-time and one part-time member of staff, based at the University of Oxford, within Kellogg College.
The Forum holds a strategy meeting approximately bi-annually, bringing members of the Forum together, to discuss policy and strategy issues. Minutes for October 2008 Strategy Meeting
