Heritage Champions

Sophie Mason made this Freedom of Information request to East Cambridgeshire District Council as part of a batch sent to 49 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear East Cambridgeshire District Council,

As part of Civic Voice’s ongoing Big Conservation Conversation campaign, we are undertaking research across England to ascertain how many local authorities currently have a Heritage Champion.

Heritage Champions are encouraged by Historic England as an executive member of the council who has lead responsibility for heritage. The person is expected to work closely with local community groups, Conservation Officers and Planning officials.

Would you be able to provide the following information?

• Are you aware of Historic England’s Heritage Champion Initiative?

• Does your local authority currently have an appointed Heritage Champion and if so, when were they appointed?

• Do you have the name and contact details of the Heritage Champion?

• If you do not have a Heritage Champion, do you have any plans to appoint such a person?

Yours faithfully,

Sophie Mason
Finance & Administration Officer

Good Morning,

Thank you for your recent FOI request. Unfortunatley, we made a small
error in our response where we stated that the Heritage Officer had been
in place since December 2018 but it was actually November 2018. Please see
revised response attached.

Kind Regards,
Victoria Higham
