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.


The District Council’s dedicated webpages look at the process:

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

Pilot scheme launched involving local community in their built heritage

Which has been covered by the Herald:

Pilot scheme will train local community to look after their own heritage assets
