This makes very few changes to the actual principles, and it generally improves on the previous advice.

This was a Historic England consultation on draft advice on the insurance of historic buildings, aimed at owners, professionals, and others. The CLA response welcomes the intention to publish advice (there was a consultation on this in 2008, but no advice was then published), but suggests some changes to make it clearer and more helpful.
