Heritage Champions

Sophie Mason made this Freedom of Information request to Haringey Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 33 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Haringey Borough 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

Dear Sophie
Re: Freedom of Information Act Request ref: LBH/9502020

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 15^th of January ,
in which you asked for information on  our Heritage champion. I include a
response to the questions put forward.

 

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

Yes, both Planning, including Conservation, and Regeneration departments
are aware of the HE's Heritage Champion Initiative

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

We do not have a  Heritage  Champion

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

As above

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

There is not currently provision  in the Council Constitution for Member
champion  appointments and  this role would be taken forward by the 
Cabinet Member  responsible for Planning.

Apologies for the  delay in response, if you are unhappy with how we have
responded to your request you can ask us to conduct an Internal Review. If
so, please contact the [1]Corporate Feedback Team.  (Please note you
should do so within two months of this response.)
