13th July - 15th September 2017
A Heritage Strategy for Stroud District

We would like to know what you think about a proposed Strategy for the enjoyment and positive management of Stroud District's historic environment and heritage assets.

This consultation is seeking views about whether the priorities and big issues identified within our consultation paper are the right things to focus on; what options exist for tackling them; any practical or financial implications; and whether there are other options or opportunities that have been missed.

Responses to this consultation will be used to help shape the final Heritage Strategy and a supporting Action Plan.
