Argyll and Bute’s heritage is as much about the future as it is about the past. An effective Historic Environment Strategy needs to ensure our diverse historic environment is fully utilised as a catalyst for future growth. By improving quality of place and promoting our outstanding heritage offer, Argyll and Bute can better attract inward investment, support our economy and help retain and grow our population.
The purpose of the Argyll and Bute Council’s Historic Environment Strategy is therefore to provide a framework and context for how we continue to enjoy, preserve, manage, interpret and promote our historic environment during the 21st Century and the numerous challenges this presents. This involves working with partners both inside and outside the Council to develop a joined up approach to heritage issues, identifying priorities and creating an achievable action plan to deliver them.
