Cheshire West and Chester Council is developing a Heritage Strategy and is asking for help. The Council has commissioned Heritage Lincolnshire to ask people across the borough what they value from the past and how it might be safeguarded for the future.

The Heritage Strategy will include the natural and built heritage of the district and create the vision for how all forms of heritage are celebrated, used, and conserved.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, said:

Heritage includes historic buildings, archaeology, designed and natural landscapes and spaces, as well as traditions, history, and documents.

The Heritage Strategy will include a vision for heritage and an action plan of how we deliver it. But I want to make sure this isn't the Council's Strategy, its far wider than that, it's looking at how we all look after and share the heritage around us from Roman archaeology to the Chester Mystery Plays and the history of salt in Northwich to the coal mining history in Neston.
