Heritage Champions

Sophie Mason made this Freedom of Information request to Tandridge District Council as part of a batch sent to 75 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 Tandridge 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
Civic Voice

Philippa Stennett, Tandridge District Council
