Have your say in the borough heritage strategy

Monday 22 January

Help shape the council's strategy for protecting Swale's heritage assets

Local people can help shape how Swale Borough Council protects, manages and develops the borough’s heritage assets by having their say on a developing heritage strategy for the borough.

The strategy will help support future bids for funding by providing a solid evidence base, and will also review known heritage assets as well as identify possible new ones, which could include new conservation areas and/or extensions to existing ones. 

Councillor Gerry Lewin, deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for planning, said: 

"The borough has a diverse range of heritage assets including more than 1,400 statutory listed buildings, 50 conservation areas, four registered parks and gardens and a range of archaeological sites, including some scheduled monuments. 

"We want to work with local people and interested groups to put together a comprehensive strategy for how we manage, conserve, protect and regenerate these assets, so they can be enjoyed for generations to come." 

Stakeholders have been contacted by heritage consultants Urban Vision Enterprise CIC to help inform the strategy, and local people interested in helping shape the strategy can come along to a drop in session at No 34, High Street, Sittingbourne on Tuesday 30 January from 4:30-7pm.
