Conservation strategy

We are committed to protecting the district and ensuring that this exceptional heritage is recognised, valued, enhanced, explained and made accessible to as many people as possible. This conservation strategy is a fundamental step to ensuring that this happens. It sets out our responsibilities and aspirations for the historic environment within the district, the resources that are available to it and a programme for how it intends to undertake this task over the next five years.

We recently consulted on a new Conservation Strategy for the period 2016-2021 and responses are now being considered.
