SVA join workshop to protect local heritage assets

The Sid Vale Association and its sister the Otter Valley Association have been pushing for the listing of local heritage assets which are not protected by national legislation:

Built Environment | OVA

Conservation and Planning | SVA

This week, members of the SVA met up with OVA colleagues in Budleigh Salterton for a two-day workshop on how to review, manage, protect and enhance local heritage assets.

They have just issued a press release on the latest stage:

Which has been covered by the Herald:
