105 LIVING HERITAGE REASSIGNMENT OF VALUABLE HISTORICAL SITES AND HERITAGE LIEVE VAN MEDEGAEL, HEAD OF DEPARTMENT BUILDING PROJECTS

106 (beleidsnota OE ) Het behoud van erfgoed draagt de principes van duurzaamheid intrinsiek in zich, zowel op ecologisch, sociaal als economisch vlak. Duurzaamheid is nog steeds een actueel thema. Het besef dat de ruimte schaars is en dat de zorg voor het leefmilieu een delicate aanpak vraagt, vindt meer en meer ingang in de samenleving. Het is onmiskenbaar zo dat het gebruik, het hergebruik en de herbestemming van het erfgoed aanzet tot een efficiënt gebruik van de schaarse middelen. De erfgoedzorg draagt bij tot het onderhouden en versterken van een kwalitatieve en duurzame samenleving waarin niet enkel de economische waarden primeren maar ook sociaal-culturele waarden worden gevalideerd. Ik laat deze bijdrage van het onroerend erfgoed aan onze samenleving onderzoeken onder meer op basis van een kostenbatenanalyse. In deze tijden van budgettaire schaarste moeten we des te meer bekijken wat prioritair is en op welke manier de middelen het doeltreffendst kunnen worden ingezet. Ik zet het premiestelsel daarom selectiever in, voornamelijk met het oog op het behoud van erfgoedwaarden. Daarnaast onderzoek ik welke fiscale stimulansen voor het behoud en beheer van onroerend erfgoed, flankerend aan het premiestelsel, we kunnen integreren in de onroerenderfgoedzorg. Het zorg dragen voor ons erfgoed mogen we niet louter als een kost beschouwen. Er is al meermaals aangetoond dat erfgoedzorg ook een economische meerwaarde creëert. Het komt er op aan om dit hefboomeffect ook daadwerkelijk te benutten. Onder meer met de Vlaamse Erfgoedkluis wil ik privé-investeerders warm maken om erfgoedprojecten te ontwikkelen. Investeren in erfgoed is immers veel meer dan een zuivere financiële belegging: het is een investering in een kwaliteitsvolle leefomgeving met oog voor haar verleden en een duurzame samenleving met een blik op de toekomst. Investment in real heritage as a leverage for economic development care for the cultural heritage makes a positive contribution to the sustainable development of the environment
